Q) How did you get introduced to APRJC ?
After my tenth standard, I got through APRJC entrance test and secured admission in Kodigenahalli branch. This concept of Andhra Pradesh Residential Junior Colleges was introduced by Late Chief Minister Sri Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao. He established three centres in the state: Nagarjuna Sagar, Kodigenahalli (Hindupur), Nimmakur (NTR’s village). I did my intermediate course from 1998 to 2000. It was one of the toughest, brave and finest decisions I had taken in my life.
I was attracted by the systematic and sainik school kind of curriculum and wanted to have a disciplined and meaningful study. That time many state ranks also used to come to these students. On the other side there were some bad remarks about the facilities provided by government. It used to allot some eight rupees per day for a student and the management has to provide everything within that budget.
We did struggle in the initial days but as we got adjusted we started respecting the essence of the Gurukulam kind of education and also honed ourselves in facing adversities. Government funded the course fully by giving free boarding and lodging facility. That way we could also save some thousands of rupees for Intermediate course.
We did fair well in the Intermediate exams but as the teaching was not focused on EAMCET, all of us got bigger ranks in EAMCET. But once we got into private engineering colleges, the unique APRJC experience helped us a lot in excelling and our entire batch mates are well settled now.
Q) What do you like about APRJC ?
1) Every student realizes the importance of money and food. Now it sounds funny for us on how we adjusted to such quality of food. We used to wait for our round of making chapattis just to get one or two extra of them than the quota.
2) Daily jogging and drill in the early hours. Though we hated it then but we cherish it a lot.
3) Teacher and student bonding.
4) Discipline curriculum.
5) Friendships that evolved from those hardships.
6) Volunteering, leadership skills, individuality automatically come to a student in this crucial stage of life.
Q) Do you want to suggest anything on APRJC ?
In our batch itself the per student budget increased from eight rupees to eleven rupees per day. Not sure about the current budget but Government should give more grants to these institutions. EAMCET and other competitive exams orientation should be streamlined with the course.
Q) Any final words about APRJC ?
Studying in APRJC is one of the most memorable and greatest things that I have done in my life and I strongly recommend to anyone who is ready to take up challenges and become a better person. One of my cousins joined in the same institute in later batches and he informed that the college has changed a lot with more facilities.

I was from the very first batch of APRJC Kodigenahalli (1989-91). We didn’t even have a building at that time. A place called Ratna Lodge in Hindupur was hired and that is where it all started. The daily budget was 4.25 Rs per student. To be honest, I hated that place. However, I must admit, those two years changed my life for good and yet I hated the life over there. I was miserable, homesick and depressed. The lecturers (at least, at that time) were horrible. But those tough times eventually taught me several life lessons and I am thankful. If I have to do it all again, perhaps, I wouldn’t go back to that college.
Hi everbody. I would rather call you my junior friends as all of you are naturally junior to me.I was the first Academic Secretary of the college as I belong to the first batch( 1989-91). Of course it goes without saying that I was the Academic secretary for two years. I think I could guess who that super senior is. he is true to an extent in that we had teething troubles initially. We were admitted in June1989 and classes commenced from August 1989. Ratna lodge was the place where it all started. Owing to the abysmal facilities a good chunk of students left the institution. Though the conditions were tough we somehow managed to study for those two years. Later we moved to the Police barracks. That’s when we got benches/desks. Until then we had to learn sitting on the floor. We conducted lot of extra-curricular activities during those two years. We won quiz competition organized by the Degree College there if my memory serves me right it is SGDC(?) We also organized the college anniversary in Feb 1991. To put things in a perspective though the conditions were not conducive and congenial to intermediate education lot of my batch mates have excelled at the EAMCET and are Doctors and Engineers now , doing well in their respective fields. Students from MEC/CEC also have settled well in their disciplines. Personally, it taught me humility and made me appreciate others’ views. i plan to do something for our Almamater in the near future very soon. I am in touch with the present Principal Mr.Somadutta. Someday I hope to arrange a get together(across all batches) and would like to see the variety in the congregation. My thanks to all those teachers who taught me , some of them were new to to teaching intermediate students albeit.I wish the Alumni of APRJC Kodigenahalli the best of everything in their lives. Bye for now. My no is 9535313290. Call me anytime, friends.Super Senior please call me!!!!
can you pls give MR,Somadutta’s contact details. i studied in APRJC Banavasi and he was my maths lecturer.
Hi this is Vijay. My batch was 1996-98. In the initial stages I was reluctant to join a residential college. After 2 months or so I appreciated myself for joining a residential college. The staff(Teaching and non-teaching) was good and the lecturers were very co-operative in explaining the lessons multiple times. Mine was MEC and I was struggling to understand the basic concept of accounts. But, the two lecturers Sri Srinivasa Rao and Sri Kondaiah taught us accounts in a simplistic and understanding manner.
Had I joined some government college, I would not have had acquired the basic knowledge of commerce and I might not have been in the position which I am at present. Now I am a chartered Accountant and I would be always greatful to this college and my teachers.
When learning something, one should not see for comofortness which you cant find in APRJC Hindupur. But there are a lot of things to learn viz., discipline and planning the future. Intermediate is the foundation for your future, hence, if any body gets a chance to study in APRJC, please join and you can have a good future prospects.
