Maharaja Puma Chandra Autonomous College is one of the premier institutes of higher education in Odisha. The College was set up in the post-independent India way back in July, 1948, during the rule of the popular ministry, with Sri Sarat Chandra Das as the Prime Minister and Maharaja Sri Pratap Chandra Bhanj Deo as the ruling chief of the State of Mayurbhanj.
Over the years the institution has grown from strength to strength and from glory to glory by adding fresh feathers to its cap of success. With the conferment of Autonomous status upon the College by the UGC and Govt. of Orissa in 2000-2001 and accreditation by NAAC with ‘B’ grade, the College has added two more shining feathers to its cap of success
