Brief History of the Institution:

  • In the early part of life of the Home, it was realized that students having only academic qualifications found it difficult to get a job soon after their completion of studies. 
  • In the year 1958 Govt. of India gave permission for starting additional diploma course in Mechanical Engineering
  • When this course (DME) was started in 1959 as per the advice of AICTE, LAE course was replaced by post diploma course of 18 months duration after DME. 
  • However the full time LAE course was totally stopped in 1962-63 as per the advice of AICTE. In 2005, as part of the centenary celebrations of the Home it was decided to introduce 2 more three year diploma courses, DAE (Diploma in Automobile Engineering) and DCE (Diploma in Computer Engineering) besides the then existing DME, with the permission of the Government and AICTE. 
  • The Government permitted DAE & DCE courses as unaided courses. The sanctioned strength for each course is 40. 
  • In addition, 10% more are allowed to be filled by lateral entry (2nd year) from applicants with + 2 qualification.
  • Because of the starting of multiple diploma courses, what was called as ‘The Technical Institute’ has been renamed as ‘Ramakrishna Mission Polytechnic College’ in the year 2007.


  • Every year 120 students in the First Year and 12 students in the Second Year (Lateral Entry) are admitted. 
  • While admitting students in the Polytechnic College, students from our Residential High School who successfully completed the SSLC examinations are given preference. 
  • Orphan / Destitute students are given preference.   

Students Admitted for First Year and Lateral Entry during Academic Year 2021-2022
