Our’s is a Government College exclusively for Women situated in Mandya a Semi Urban city. It began as a branch of Government First grade college, Mandya which was a co-ed college in the year 1970. In the year 1971 it was bifurcated into Government College for Women and Government Boys College to accommodate the growing number of women students seeking admission. We are proud to say that it is nearing its golden jubilee celebrations. Our Institution is a brain child of visionaries and educationalists of Mandya, prominent among them being Sri K.V.
