We are very much elated to introduce ourselves as premier group of educational institutions in the area of Higher Education and Technical Education in the Southern India.

With the modest beginning, our Viswa Bharati Education Society, whose members are of high academic excellence, which was Registrar of Societies, Government of Andhra Pradesh has established our Chaitanya Degree College in the year 1991 and Chaitanya Postgraduate College in the year 1993. Our Degree College offers Under Graduate courses with Life Science and Physical Science, Commerce, Management, Banking & Insurance combinations. Our Postgraduate College offers non-professional courses, M.Sc Five Years Integrated courses and professional courses i.e., MBA and MCA, which were approved by AICTE, a statutory Body of government of India.

These two institutions are permanently affiliated to Kakatiya University, Warangal and included in 2(f) & 12(B) of UGC Act, 1956 during 1997 and 1998. Based on the academic performance the National Accreditation and Academic Council (NAAC), Bengaluru a statutory body of Government of India has issued accreditation with “A” grade to our Chaitanya Degree College and “B++” to our Chaitanya Postgraduate College. Much impressed by the academic excellence, infrastructure etc., the University Grants Commission and Kakatiya University have granted extension of autonomous status to both the colleges in 2012.These are the first colleges to get autonomous status under Kakatiya University jurisdiction. A special mention has to be made that ours is the only private un-aided Postgraduate College to get autonomous status throughout erstwhile Andhra Pradesh.
