Ananda Marga Polytechnic, Kolar established in the year 1986, with the purpose of providing technical education to the rural people, and spread over the campus of nearly 10 acres of land, the Ananda Marga Polytechnic is directly run by its Management Committee, and is supervised and controlled by the Education Relief and Welfare Section (ERAWS) of the Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha (in short AMPS, registered under the Society Act of West Bengal) through the Governing Council of its local unit “Ananda Marga Education Relief and Welfare Center, Mylandahalli”. We would also let you know that the AMPS, perhaps, is the only organization, which has been declared as “religious denomination” by the Supreme Court of India thereby allowing the citizen of India, to freely and fearlessly participate in its cultural and religious activities (Please refer AIR 1984, Volume 71, Supreme Court Section, Page No. 56). Being an important section of the AMPS, the ERAWS is running more than 1500 schools in India and abroad. Additionally, it has been running a large network of children’s home, rural development center, retiring homes, charitable dispensaries, medical clinics, hospitals, cheap kitchens etc., throughout the globe. Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (registered as a United Nations NGO in its own right) is successfully carrying out disaster relief amongst suffering humanity during cyclone, flood, earthquake and drought.
Ananda Marga Polytechnic thus is a part of the global service network of Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha. The three years Diploma Engineering Certificate holders of this institute are eligible to recruitment into technical posts and services in the private and public sector units, like banks, TISCO, TELCO, Infosys, Wipro, etc., and in the State and Central Govt. offices like railways and various engineering dept.

Library: The library has an adequate collection of various books by different authors covering various syllabi. The reference books are also kept in the library for serious study and references.
Moral Teaching and Personality Development: Normally the student joins the polytechnic as an adolescent. At that time he/she dreams about a bright career. By the time he/she reaches the final year, his/her approach becomes somewhat realistic and he/she feels that he/she needs a lot of effort, courage and inner moral force to face the harsh realities of the world. We, therefore educate him/her by combining professionalism with morality. It clearly means that professional knowledge may provide him/her happiness and comfort, but for leading a peaceful life, he/she should be a person of high moral character.
Hostel: Hostel facility is also provided to the students who wish to stay there. The hostel building is situated within the college campus. Its ideal environment inspires students to study sincerely throughout the session. Almost all facilities like 24hrs water and electricity supply (generator is used during load shedding), toilets, bathrooms, indoor games (chess and carom), adjacent playground (for cricket, volleyball, football and badminton), Newspapers, T.V. (for english News and limited programs only) etc., are provided to the students. The professional cooks under the strict supervision of the hostel superintendent prepare the pure vegetarian food for them. The students living in the hostel must abide by the rules and regulations framed for the hostel.
Games, Sports, Extra-curricular Activities: Everybody knows the importance of games and sports. In addition to keeping student healthy and energetic, it brings closeness amongst students of different temperaments & regions and helps them to understand each other in a better way.
We also arrange a pleasure trip to any good tourist place every year, so that they may understand the importance of living and travelling together. Such visits broaden the horizon of their minds and they visualize the society at large. Our students also attend free medical camp to realize that the service to humanity is service to God. New Year Day celebration and farewell parties are regular occasions where students meet together to develop a humane outlook of life.
