Historical Sketch:

Sri Rajah Vatsavai Butchi Seetayamma Jagapathi Bahadur Maha Ranee College was started in 1967 to commemorate as its name implies an enlightened and philanthropic Maha Ranee of the Peddapuram Samsthanam and more especially in response to a long felt need for a college of Arts and Science in this area. The then Chairman of the East Godavari Zilla Parished, Sri S.B.P.B.K Satyanarayana Rao garu took the initiative in this regard and it is largely to his pioneering zeal in the cause of education that the college owes its existence. The Govt. of Andhra Pradesh graciously permitted the diversion of Rs. 90,000 for the college from the funds of the Maha Ranee Choultry. The SARVARAYA EDUCATIONAL TRUST, KAKINADA, generously donated Rs. 50,000 for purchase of a site for the College. In addition, considerable amounts were donated by Sri SATYANARAYANA RAO garu himself and other prominent members of the Public like SRI MUPPANA CHINA ANKAIAH garu and his brothers. Subsequently in the year 1992, Sri S.B.P.B.K. SATYANARAYANA RAO garu of CHELLURU sugars had donated a further sums of Rs. 52,000 and Rs. 30,000 in two spels as a gesture of munificence for the development of the college.

The College was started in August 1967 with three sections of P.U.C. and one each of B.A. and B.Com. The very next year in July 1968, the college became more or less full-fledged with the addition of B.Sc. providing for both the popular combinations of M.P.C. & C.B.Z. P.U.C. was replaced by Two YEAR INTERMEDIATE COURSES in Science, Arts and commerce in the year 1969.
The college was granted academic Autonomy in July 1987. Re-structured courses in B.Sc. and B.A. were started with M.P.AC., M.P.E., and E.P.P. & E.C.F. combinations.

After completion of five years the management of this college decided to do away with Autonomy from the academic year 1993-94 onwards and the college came under Non-Autonomous regulations. Now the college is following Andhra University in all academic matters and examinations from 1993-94 onwards.

The college has grown up to lofty heights during all these years in both Quality and Quantity with generous contributions from the people of local and surrounding villages. Today the strength is around 2000 students with 80 Faculty members.
During the 40th year of inception the college started P.G. Courses in Physics, graduate courses with M.P.C. & Computer Science in English medium. In Intermediate level also English Medium was introduced in this year for M.P. Group.
