The college was started in June 1982 by the Management of Janatha Education Society with B.A., B.Sc., and B.Com, courses with 150 students, 08 teachers and 02 administrative staff. The JES catered the needs of the college by generous contributions made by some of its members. Year by year the college made remarkable progress in all fronts and by the end of 1986-87 the students’ strength increased to 700 with a faculty of 15. The infrastructure facility of the college during that period was not able to meet the requirements, however, the JES took initiative to develop the infrastructure by constructing a new building and equipping the laboratories. After the completion of Five years of non-grant period, college with all the requisites applied to the Government of Karnataka for Grant-in-Aid facility and obtained the same in August 1987. The college also obtained 2(f) status in 1991 and 12 (B) status in 1994 from UGC, which facilitated the college for its all-round development.
