There were a few colleges and large number of economically backward young boys and girls willing to undertake higher education. In this backdrop, a few people thought of opening a college. They approached a philanthropist of Ranchi city for their help and guidance.

The then Chief Minister of Bihar, Kedar Nath Pandey inaugurated the college and it started functioning in the space provided by a school situated in Bariatu Road, Ranchi.
