Importants of Nilagiri :

Nilagiri was one of the princely states of Pre-independent India. This state was established by a tribal chieftain named “Nilo Sardar” during the second half of 18th century. So it is believed that the place “Nilagiri” is named after its founder Nilo Sardar. Further, Nilagiri is the first princely state merged with Indian sovereignty after independence. So the history of Nilagiri Contributes a glorious chapter to the whole country. The eminent freedom fighter like Late Kailash Chandra Mohanty, Banamali Das, Balaram Raj and others of this princely state took leadership and organized mass agitation against the dictatorial rule of the then king Kishore Chandra Mardaraj Harichandan (1925 - 1947) in particular and against the British rule in general. At last the king was stepped down on 14th November, 1947.

Because about 70% of its total population belongs to the communities of Banavasis, Adivasis, backward classes, Un-privileged sections etc. The tourist spots Panchalingeswar (Shiv temple), Bhudarchandi temple at Sajanagarh, Shree Jagannath temple at Nilagiri etc. are situated within 8 kilometers radius of the college.
