Sri Vasavi Kanyaka Paremswari & Dr.Kalidindi Suryanarayana Raju Arts & Science College, a pioneering educational institution in A.P. was established on the august day of 4th August 1974 at Penugonda in west Godavari district with the highest guiding principle “Synoptic education to all”. Behind this temple of learning strenuous efforts of several political and academic stalwarts have been there right from the foundation stone for the success and the growth of this institution in a big way. It is highly apposite in this connection to mention in brief the need to establish the college and above all the way in which the founding fathers, floundered to give a concrete shape to their long cherished dream of establishing a college for the sake of the all round development of the youth in and around Penugonda.
The hostel was started in the year 1991 with different courses in temporary building. The Permanent Building of Ground Floor of the Women’s Hostel was constructed in the year 2001 under the assistance of University Grants Commission under special scheme with 40 rooms. Now this hostel has great infrastructure with 300 members of eight different courses with fully established facilities.
