The idea of starting a college in this place, although cherished in the mind of many educated and well-placed persons of the area for a long time, was given a definite shape during 1957. Early in 1958 a public meeting attended by most of the M.L.A.s., M.P.s and leading persons of the area was held under the Presidentship of the then Union Minister Sri Nityananda Kanungo, where a committee was formed to collect funds and organise for the opening of a college. Dr. P. Parija, the then Vice-Chancellor of Utkal University and Sri Sripati Nanda, I.P.S. (Retd.) were elected as President and Secretary of the committee respectively. In another meeting in December, 1958, the present site, where the college stands today, was selected for the purpose and in a ubsequent meeting in 1959, the Secretary was authorised to acquire this area of about 37 acres by way of registered sale or gift-deeds. In a meeting held in January, 1962 at Dr. Parija’s residence at Cuttack, it was unanimously resolved to request Sri Biren Mitra, the then Deputy Chief Minister of the state and an inhabitant of this area, to act as President of the College Committee, to empower him to nominate other members of the committee. The Governing Body was thus constituted and worked under his direction. The Governing Body has since been reconstituted as per the statutory provision of Utkal University Statutes and Govt. of Orissa in the Department name of Higher Education. Affiliation was granted by Utkal University to open Science classes with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology from the academic session, 1963-64. The college was formally inaugurated by the then Deputy Chief Minister Sri Biren Mitra on 25-7-1963. That year the college had a strength of 64 students in Pre-University Science class (Subsequently raised to 80) and five members of the teaching staff. During the session, 1964-65 the CoIlege was affiliated in Arts at the, Pre-University stage and in Science at Pre-Professional stage. The students strength that year went upto more than 360 and the staff strength to 16. During the session, 1965-66 the college was granted affiliation in Arts at the 1st year degree stage and in 1966- 67 at the final degree stage. The college had developed to a fulfledged degree college with teaching facilities in Arts, Science and Commerce in degree stage. Teaching facilities were provided at the Honours in Physics, Chemistry and Botany in the Year 1973. Affiliation was granted for Honours classes in English, Oriya, Economics, Pol.Science, History and Mathematics between 1969 and 1972 and Honours classes in Zoology in 1975, and Sanskrit in 1978.
