Management Founders

The Visvodaya society was founded in 1952 not only to upgrade the existing intermediate college but also to expand educational and social service activities. The society adopted the motto ‘Tamasoma Jyothirgamaya’ and fixed its goals as academic excellence, Social Justice, Cultural richness, democratic thinking, humanism and the development of human personality. Kavali College was rechristened as Jawahar Bharati in 1965 with Dr. Zakir Hussain, the then Vice president of India as the Chief Guest. It was a sort of tribute paid to Pundit Nehru by Visvodaya.
