The Valivalam Desikar Polytechnic College was established in the year 1958 under the auspices of the Valivalam Desikar Educational Trust. Our founder Thiru K.M.Desikar, B.A., a noted Philanthropist, established this institution with the aim of giving technical education to the rural students mostly of agrarian families. The revenue return from the wet lands of the trust is the source to meet a portion of management share of the recurring expenditure of the polytechnic college. The remaining portion of the recurring and non-recurring expenditure for the development activities are met from the State government grant.
