About the Centre

    Kanchi Mamunivar Government Institute for Post graduate Studies and Research(KMGIPSR), Puducherry is a Government Institution, started in the year 1989 with the objective of imparting higher education at Postgraduate and Research level to the urban and rural society. It is affiliated to Pondicherry University, offering 13 PG Courses, 11 M.Phil Programmes and 8 Ph.D Programmes in Arts, Humanities, Commerce and Science disciplines. The Centre was originally named as Centre for PG Studies and was renamed as Kanchi Mamunivar Centre for Postgraduate Studies (KMCPGS) in 1994 and Kanchi Mamunivar Centre for Postgraduate Studies (KMCPGS) was renamed as Kanchi Mamunivar Government Institute for Post graduate Studies and Research(KMGIPSR)in 2019 and is recognized under 2f and 12B of the UGC Act, 1956 with effect from 1993. The Centre made a paradigm shift in the curriculum adopting "Choice Based Credit System" (CBCS) during 2012-13 for all PG programmes and during 2013-14 for all M.Phil programmes. The shift from the old system of curriculum to "Choice Based Credit System" enabled both the students and the faculties more vibrant and versatile in improving the standard and quality of knowledge and skill. The autonomy of evolving pedagogy has been most suited to the need of the industry and employment market at large thereby it enabled open gates for industry-institution-interface for all the students and as a result industrial visits and internship have been implemented as important parts of curriculum.

    In the first cycle, the Centre was accredited at B++ Grade on 21st September 2005 and was re-accredited at "A" Grade with CGPA of 3.19 on four point scale on 5th January, 2013 in Cycle 2. Based on the excellent academic and research performance of the Centre, the University Grants Commission (UGC) conferred the Centre with Autonomous Status for a period of six years from the academic year 2007-08 to 2012-13. It was further extended the for the second term on 19th June, 2014 for six years from 2013-14 to 2018-19. Further, the Centre was bestowed with the status of "College With Potential for Excellence" (Phase-I) on 18th March, 2010 for a period of five years from 2009-10 to 2013-14 and got extension of the status of "College With Potential for Excellence" (Phase-II) on 31st January, 2014 for a period of five years i. e. from 2014-15 to 2018-19.

    After getting the Autonomous status during the year 2007, the Centre has made a drastic change in the curriculum and syllabus, incorporating abreast of the current changes in science, technology, taxation, laws, government policy, industrial policy, etc., which made the students at PG level and M.Phil level compete with the students of higher learning institutions (HLIs) of national as well as international repute across the states in India and elsewhere.
