The Department of Malayalam started with the inception of the College in 1995. It remains to be a subsidiary department since there is no UG or PG Course in Malayalam language. The department handles the teaching of Malayalam as an additional language at the Degree level. Out of the courses offered by the College in its initial years, Malayalam, as an additional language was only offered in B-Com. Starting in 2014, B-Sc Mathematics students were also offered the subject. Currently, B-Com students in 1st and 2nd semesters, and B-Sc students till 4th semester have Malayalam as their complementary course.
