About Utkal Mani Gopabandhu Mahavidyalaya Khamar Angul

This institution is situated in an economically and educationally backward area of Central Orissa. Lying by the National Highway No.23, it is well connected with the important places of the State. Though it is adjacent to the two most important power projects of Orissa, namely, Rengali hydro-electricity project and the super thermal power project at Kaniha, it is least benefitted from them as it rests in the penumbra region of these power-boosters. Hence the sparsely populated villages of this area suffer eternally from chill penury and administrative aloofness.
     Due to some unimaginable instinct to educate the youth populace of the area, some of the local enthusiasts took firm decision to establish an institution to help the poor fathers solidify their fugitive dreams. In 1979, a meeting was convened to test the mind of the so-called dignitaries of the area including Late Dharanidhar Pradhan, Ex-MLA, Pallahara, Sri Hari Prasad Pradhan, Sri Sadasiva Pradhan, Sri Ganeswar Sahoo, Late Gobardhan Pradhan, Sri Dileswar Pradhan, Late Kolha Charan Sahoo, Late Nabaghana Pradhan and a noted educationist of this area, Late Brajabandhu Pradhan. All of them unanimously agreed to lay the foundation stone of this college by raising a fund from local charity.
     Initially started as an intermediate Arts College in the auspices of Utkalmani Gopabandhu Uchha Vidyapeetha, the institution was soon shifted to its present location surrounded by sal and mahuatrees giving an air of a gurukul ashram. The Degree classes were started in the year 1984 and the college got affiliated to the Utkal University. In the year 1994, the college got recognition by the UGC and became eligible to receive grants under sections 2f and 12b. The intermediate Science classes were also started in the same year. The college is now a growing institution having a girls' hostel and a well furnished library, with facilities of self financing computer courses. The college also enjoys the opportunity if teaching honours subjects on History and Political Science.
