Best College in the State Based on Overall Performance
In the nineties, the government of Kerala, instituted an award in the name of the former Chief Minister R. Sankar, for the best College in the state based on overall performance. The college won the award in the year 1997. In 1999, the feat was repeated – virtually, in consecutive years as the winner of a particular year was ineligible to apply for the year in the succeeding year. Thereafter, the government discontinued the practice.
