History of the college

            A Government college in Mananthavady had been a long cherished dream of the marginalised people of the hill area of Mananthavady Taluk of Wayanad District. A Sponsoring Committee- North Wayanad Education Society- was formed for this purpose. Thus the dream came true when Government College Mananthavady started functioning with two Pre-degree batches (III and IV Groups) with 80 students in each batch, in a temporary building attached to the St. Sebastian’s Church, Thonichal on 1st September 1981. The college was affiliated to the University of Calicut, which is now affiliated to Kannur University.

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

            The college was upgraded by introducing B.Com degree course in 1991-92. B.A. English was started in 1993-94, B.A. Development Economics in 1998-99 and B.Sc. Electronics in 1999-2000. The college has started M.Com in this academic year (2012-13) with specialization in Financial Management. Sri. P.J. Joseph, the then Minister for Education, inaugurated the new permanent multi-storied college building on 27th February 1999, and the college was shifted to the permanent building.     

    The college is located in a hillock near Payod in Edavaka Panchayat, Mananthavady Taluk, Wayanad District, just 200 meters away from Mananthavady Kalpetta state highway. Now the college is with 4 major departments (with 1 post graduate and 4 under graduate programmes) stands as an oasis of learning for hundreds of students who come out of the Higher Secondary Schools around the vast area of Wayanad district. This institution has ample scope for great expansion and development which is expected in due course.
