The Govt College, Ambalapuzha was established in August 2010, by the Govt of Kerala. It is directly under the watch of the Dept of Collegiate Education, Kerala. The College is affiliated to the University of Kerala.
The Govt College, Ambalapuzha inaugurated on September 12, 2010 by the then Chief Minister of Kerala Sri V S Achuthanadhan is the fulfilment of the long cherished dream of the people who left no stone unturned for its realization. Yet, it was by the last ditch effort of the former Minister of Kerala and Ambalapuzha MLA Sri G Sudhakaran the long standing clamour for the college became a reality. The college owes it overwhelming gratitude to him and the people. The New College building was completed fast and inaugurated on September 30, 2015 by the Chief Minister of Kerala Sri Oommjen Chandy. The inauguration was the celebration of dream, hope and gratitude.
Ambalapuzha has given birth to many illustrious human beings who created a niche for themselves and served the country and people. Yet, the backwardness of the region that includes Kuttanadu and coastal locale necessitated a centre for higher learning- A Govt. College, where education is affordable to the children of the poor and the needy would be the panacea for all their maladies. This beacon of hope will definitely blaze the path and brighten up new horizons for the new generation.
History in Nutshell
The only Govt College in Alappuzha District inaugurated on September 12, 2010 by the then Chief Minister of Kerala Sri V S Achuthanadhan had been functioning in Kunjupillai Memorial Govt HSS, Ambalapuzha. It had to confine itself to very limited facilities available in a school. Despite its limitation, the college forayed itself very strongly into the arena of higher education and stood the course. The inauguration of the construction of the new building was started on February 25, 2011. The inauguration of the new building was done by the Chief Minister Sri Oommjen Chandy on September 30, 2015. The college was shifted to the new building on 29 September 2015.
