Welcome to Pattamundai College
The need for an educational institution for higher learning resulted in establishment of Pattamundai College. By the sincere endeavours and dedication of some enthusiastic sons of Pattamundai, the long cherished dream of the people to establish a college could be fulfilled.
The Idea of establishing a college at Pattamundai first inculcated in the minds of a few college students studying in various colleges of the State during the Sixties. The initiative taken by the Pattamundai Students’ Association paved the way for setting up the college. The Association convened a meeting and the purpose of establishing a college was given full encouragement. A Managing Committee was formed and Sri Prahallad Mallick, the then Deputy Minister of Irrigation and Power, was unanimously elected as President and Sri Brundaban Tripathy, the then Chairman of Pattamundai Panchayat Samiti was elected Secretary and Dr. Padmanav Tripathy as the Vice President. This Committee acted whole- heartedly to raise funds for the proposed college and collected public donations and subscriptions. By 1967 about fifteen acres of land was bought and acquired for the institution. The foundation stone was laid by the President of the Managing Committee on 1st June, 1967. The Managing Committee was reorganised in 1968 and Dr. Padmanav Tripathy was elected as the Secretary of the Committee and Sri Biswanath Mishra, as the President in order to expedite the work. However the college functioned in full swing from 5th July 1970..Hence ,Annually,This day is observed as the "Foundation Day" of the college.
