Mahila Mahavidyalaya began its journey of imparting education to lesser privileged women in an area, where education to girls of weaker sections, was a far reaching dream. Stree Shikshan Prasarak Mandal took the initiative of doing this yeomanrsquos job, and started the evening college, for women in 1971, despite innumerable hurdles. The institution till date has provided education to thousands of girls, and helped them enrich their lives socially and economically.
