The Govt. of Tamilnadu in its G.O. 190 dated 7 June 2000 graciously granted its approval for starting the college in the academic year 2000-2001.
To begin with, the college was housed temporarily in Sivakasi town in 2000-2001 with a modest number of three courses. In just a year, massive and imposing buildings with architectural splendour sprang up at A.Meenakshipuram, 7 kilometres away from Sivakasi on the Virudhunagar - Sivakasi road. The college moved to its new premises on 19 March, 2001.
This college is also recognised by the UGC under 2(f) dated 1 June 2006. 12B status was attained by the college on 4 October, 2010. Autonomous status was conferred by UGC on 1 March, 2012.
NAAC, Bangalore reaccredited the college with A Grade (3.30 CGPA) in July 2013.
