             His friends and well- wishers felicitatedhim and presented him a purse on the occasion of his 61st birthday in1952. He graciously donated the entire amount for starting this Technical inthe year 1952. This institute  made ahumble  beginning by conducting A.M.I.E.Classses. Many Arts and Science Graduates become engineers after passingsections A & B of A.M.I.E.


Thisinstitution became  a full fledged aidedPolyechnic in 1954 with an annual intake of 100 students under the policy ofCentral and State Governments to produce more technicians to meet the requirementsof industries. In 1958 the intake was is increased to 120 and in 1961 it wasfurther increased to 180 as both Central and State Governments were impressedwith the functioning of this Institution.
