Brief History of Bharathamatha College, Kozhinjamapra
Our college was established in 2015 as a new initiative in Kozhinjamapra to contribute towards the higher education scenario of Palakkad district. With over four decades of experience of running a prestigious school in the town, the management was approached by parents to start a private college as required by many. Many students from these localities still depend upon colleges in TN for their higher education. With the availability of the land in Kozhinjampara, the dream was fulfilled in 2015 with four classrooms in a small building. Now over the last four years we have built enviable infrastructure and other facilities. This is a developmentally backward area and more than 75% students in this college currently belong to any one of the OBC groups. It shows the relevance and importance of this college in this locality. The college is affiliated to Calicut University from its inception.
