The department of Malayalam started functioning right from the inception of the college in the year 1964. Though Malayalam is offered only as additional language for BA/ B.Sc/ B. Com courses, the Department has been actively involved in the curricular and co-curricular activities as well as in the cultural programmes of the institution. The Department encourages students in bringing forth the manuscript titled ‘Thoolika” every year in the first of November. With a view to inculcate a taste for Malayalam literature the Department conducts ‘Kadha Saugamum’ and ‘Kavi Arangu’ for which students take part enthusiastically. The present faculty comprising Dr. C. Udayakala continue to hold literary discussions and competitions at regular intervals.
