The rulers of Mysore Kingdom felt the need to establish research units in the field of agriculture and donated about 30 acres of land to setup an Agriculture station at Hebbal, and appointed German scientist Lehmann, who was later succeeded by a Canadian Entomologist and Mycologist, Leslie Coleman, to initiate research on soil crop response. The same commitment to agriculture sector was shown by the Indian Government, which resulted in the establishment of many agricultural universities throughout the country. One among them was the University of Agricultural Sciences, which came into existence on August 21, 1964. After nearly half a decade on July 12, 1969 the then Prime minister Indira Gandhi inaugurated the esteemed Gandhi Krishi Vignan Kendra (GKVK), Bangalore.
GCC is the one of the best colleges I have seen in India. The first time I joined GCC I did not know much about the college but i was attracted mostly by the service rendered by the staff here. I was joining from another college and after visiting different colleges in Bangalore, I realized that there is no other college in Bangalore I can study peacefully than GCC.
At the gate the security personnel’s spoke very gently and guided me where to go. Looking around GCC, I was attracted by the infrastructure; different blocks surrounded by the flowers, beautiful gardens in front of each department and the coconut trees that spread a fresh environment everywhere in GCC. Wherever I stepped that day I had a good feeling out of the environment of the college which is very attractive and really beautiful. But I still did not know about the teachers in class, my classmates and the staff here.
