Principal Dr. M. Janaki is the edifice on which the institution is built. She is an able administrator and strives hard to fulfill the objectives and aspirations of students. She takes utmost interest to groom and develop students with deep knowledge, maturity of mind and right skills.
The commitment of the Principal and the management towards quality education is reflected in the consistent excellent academic record of the students of the Padmavathi right from the first batch. Every year Padmavathi bags University ranks, high pass percentage, seats in P.G Courses, Camus Placements and many more.

I feel it is my privilege to be associated with Prafulla Chandra Ray Educational Society, especially with Padmavathi Degree College for Women since its inception exactly 20 years ago. On this occasion I convey my best wishes to all teaching, non teaching staff members and all the alumini of Padmavathi Degree College for Women.
The college is committed to impart innovative, in depth learning to empower the girls with skills and traits of ingenious problem solver and critical thinker. The characteristic teaching and learning methods of our college include inter disciplinary approaches through seminars to face the challenges of modern world and career progressions to become responsible citizens of our country.

I feel proud of the alumini who have won prestigious University ranks for the past twenty years and enrolled in Post-graduate programmes in various Universities.
Comprehensive, professional and socially relevant education in the college is supported by our placement cell that reward has several placements for our students in WIPRO, TECH MAINDRA, TCS, Cap Gemini Accenture, I-GATE etc. 
Finally, I am always open to innovation and change that is beneficial to students in particular and society in general. We have navigated the first two decades of our existence to pursue value based academic excellence in future also.
I invite young energetic, enthusiastic and intelligent girls to become a part of Padmavathi family and grab every opportunity they come across with the sound academic foundation that is provided in the college.
