It stands affiliated to Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli 620024 since 2007. It is located at the foothill of Ayyarmalai, Kulithalai, Karur District 639120. It was established in the year 2007 (G.O. No. 270, Higher Education (G1) Department, Dated: 3.8.2007). It was originally named “Doctor Kalaignar Government Arts College.” It started functioning on 07.08.2007.

          I appeal to the students to use various support services available in the college and improve their knowledge and skills. The library has been updated with a new set of books, which the students should use optimally. We should keep our campus clean and green. Let’s understand the seriousness of the Covid 19 situation, observe the SOP and behave responsibly. Self-discipline is the soul of one’s personality. The students should develop it consciously and become responsible citizens of the society. One should not forget that hard work is unfailingly rewarding.

”தெய்வத்தான் ஆகா தெனினும் முயற்சிதன்
மெய்வருத்தக் கூலி தரும்.”

          I request the students to use the feedback system of the college to register their complaints, requests and suggestions. 

           I wish you a great academic success!
