BRIEF HISTORY OF THE INSTITUTION
The Gayathri Academy was established by Sri K.S.V.Krishna Rao in 1999 with the object of promoting the cause of education and providing further opportunities to the young students of Machilipatnam and the surrounding areas. To cater to the needs of students desirous of taking up degree courses, it was proposed to start a degree college. It was a happy coincidence that His Holiness Sri Bala Sai Baba extended his blessings for the success of the enterprise, and even suggested that the institution be named as Sri Bala Sai Degree College.
The college started functioning in June-2000 as a co-education college and imparted instruction in the following courses in the English Medium.
1) B.Sc. – Mathematics, Electronics and Computer Science.
2) B.Sc. - Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.
3) B.Sc. - Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. -(Em)
4) B.Com. – Computer Applications.
The institution has the good fortune of being served by a dedicated band of young teachers, proficient in their respective subjects. The first batch of students who took the final year examination in March/April-2003 produced a 92% of results.
Recently the college management changed hands. Sri. K.S.V.Krishna Rao resigned as secretary and correspondent on grounds of illness. A new Governing Body took over. Sri. G.S.Bindu was elected as President and G.Papa Raju elected as Secretary and Correspondent. Both elections were unanimous. Both the President and the Secretary have a good educational background and have worked as Lecturers. They have been successfully running the ‘Sri Krishna Chaitanya Junior College’ in the town.
