Silver Jubilee Government College emerged on the glorious eve of Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Indian Independence in 1972. It is the brain-child of Sri P. V. Narasimha Rao, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh then, who wanted to establish a state-wide institution to forge emotional integration of the people of the three regions of the state when its integration was threatened by the separatist movements. For this lofty ideal, he chose Sri M. V. Rajagopal, I.A.S., the visionary educationist and Principal Secretary of Higher Education of that time. Sri M. V. Rajagopal aimed at giving the best education to the best students irrespective of their financial status. His lofty dream of establishing an ideal academic institution on the model of Cambridge University took the shape of this college.
Silver Jubilee Government College bloomed as the academic jasmine of Andhra Pradesh with its ascetic simplicity and vibrant fragrance. It has proved itself to be the Philosopherâ€™s Stone that has transformed many immature caterpillars into beautiful butterflies. The alumni have raised the reputation of their beloved alma mater with their academic excellence, professional competence and ethical elegance to the starry heights wherever they are.
