This polytechnic was started in the year 1963 by our Former Chairman Shri P.R. Ramasubrahmaneya Rajha under III Five Year Plan with the twin objective of fulfilling the aspirations of his father Shri P.A.C. Ramasamy Raja and offering quality technical education at an affordable cost to the economically weaker sections of the society. Our former Chairman proved himself a worthy son to his father. During his primitive days, he inculcated the traits like punctuality, dedication to work, adherence to government rules and regulations, religious values, empathy and showing kindness to the needy
Immediately after his studies, he was sent by his father to get training in Madura coats. Like our beloved founder, our former Chairman too believed in the popular saying “A contented worker will give to the employer better work and therefore better profits”.
Under his dynamic leadership, Ramco Group of Companies reached lofty heights. His creativity and quest for quality made Ramco Group as one of the most admired business groups in India. His visionary zeal was behind the setting up of modern cement manufacturing plants, spinning mills and educational and charitable institutions all over the country.
Closely following the heels of our founder, our former Chairman too showed keen interest in establishing educational institutions. Under our former chairman’s leadership, the polytechnic grew astoundingly and curved a renowned name in the field of technical education. Besides establishing our polytechnic, our compassionate former Chairman established a scores of educational institutions including P.A.C.R. Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Chinmaya Vidyalaya Srimathi Lingammal Ramaraju Matriculation Hr. Sec. School, Ramco Industrial Training Institute and Ramco Institute of Technology.

“Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life, not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving, not by measure of wealth; by our simple goodness” proclaims William Arthur Ward. Our former Chairman was an embodiment of this famous quote. His dedication and perseverance towards the elevation of suffering humanity is highly laudable and commendable. He has left a behind a legacy of sincerity, hard work and dedication which are being inherited and followed by the employees of this temple of learning.
