The 2nd oldest college of odisha is from our gajapati district named as SRI KRUSHNA CHANDRA GAJAPATI AUTONOMOUS COLLEGE The history of growth and development of the college is an account of the ardent zeal and dedicated endeavour of the former rulers of Paralakhemundi for the spread of education in Odisha. This illustrious institution was founded in 1896 under the munificent patronage of the Raja of Paralakhemundi “Shri Shri Shri Goura Chandra Gajapati Narayana Deo”. In the same year it obtained affiliation as a second grade college from the Madras University. Due to the initiative and continued efforts by our foster father, Maharaja Sri Krushna Chandra Gajapati Narayana Deo the college was upgraded to the status of a first grade college in 1936, but why the govt is not upgrading this college to a University ? Why the govt is doing partiality with our GAJAPATI people ?
