Accreditation to help institution secure more funds for development of infrastructure

An expert team from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) would be visiting one of the oldest colleges, Kakatiya Degree College in Hanamkonda soon to give certification.

The college, established in the year 1972, offered only arts and commerce courses initially but has now expanded itself to offer science and restructured courses. About 23 courses are being offered by the college to about 2,000 students despite shortage of classrooms.

During its over-three-decade existence, the college has produced some distinguished personalities who were serving across the globe in various capacities. College principal R Marthamma said the accreditation by the NAAC would help secure more funds for development of infrastructure, introduce more new courses and attract the cream among the students.

Alumni support

The old students of the college who met at a the recent alumni meet promised to support the college in all possible means, said the alumni convener K Somi Reddy.

Besides excelling in educational activities, the college students have also been actively taking part in extra-curricular activities like National Service Scheme and National Cadet Corps. The college NSS Programme officer Satyanarayana Rao has been presented the ‘Best NSS Officer' for the year 2011-12.

Vocational course

Similarly, a student Raghupati Reddy has been chosen as ‘Best NSS Volunteer' for the year 2011-12. Likewise the college NCC wing has also been active and many of its cadets were taking part in events like Republic Day Parade at the State and national level.

Kakatiya Government Degree and Post Graduate College has recently started a six months' duration vocational course in mushroom cultivation for which the University Grants Commission has given Rs 10 grant, the course coordinator Dr. Sasasiva Reddy said.
