About the College

Government College Mananthavady had been a long cherished dream of the marginalised people of the hill area of Mananthavady Taluk of Wayanad District. The college started functioning with Pre-degree III and IV Groups with 80 students in each, in a temporary shed attached to Thonichal Church on 1st September 1981. The College was affiliated to University of Calicut (Now is affiliated to Kannur University).

Sri E. K. Nayanar, the then Chief Minister of Kerala inagurated the college on 4th October 1981, at a function presided over by Sri Baby John, the Minister for Education. In 1983, the college was shifted to the newely constructed building with 8 rooms by the sponsoring committee. Another building with 5 rooms was also constructed under N.R.E.P. Scheme.

The college was upgraded by starting B. Com. degree course in 1991-92. B. A. English was started in 1993-94, B. A. Dev. Economics in 1998-99 and B. Sc. Electronics in 1999-2000.Sri P. J. Joseph, the then Minister for Education of Kerala inagurates the new permanent college building on 27th February 1999, and the college was shifted to the permanent building. PG Programme in Commerce is started functioning in 2012-13.

This college is located in a hillock near Payode in Edavaka Panchayat, Mananthavady Taluk, Wayanad District, just 3½ kms. North East from Mananthavady Kalpetta highway.Now the college with four degree courses stands as an oasis of learning for the hundreds of students who come out with thing colours from Higher Secondary Schools around the vast area of Mananthavady Taluk. This young institution has ample scope for great expansion and development which is expected in due course.
