One of the city's oldest educational institutions has a reason to celebrate as it finally completes 100 years since its construction on the city's famous River Musi banks. The Government City, which looks more like a heritage structure and is a grade II structure, stands tall and provides education to Intermediates and Undergrads.


 The college was constructed by Chief Engineer Nawab Khan Bahadur Mirza Akbar Baig, a prolific architect of the Nizam Era, and a close friend Mir Osman Ali Khan, The founder of the college. The architect built this  100-year-old structure on 6-acre land with an Indo-Saracenic architectural style. The presence of the River Musi quite close to this college has significantly influenced the materials used for its construction, especially since the ground floor is made up of stone, and the rest of the building is made up of lime or mortar. 


The building consists of 64 rooms, including a gallery, seminar rooms, and an extensive library. The furniture that the entire building has is quite a rare sight to see in an educational institution and is still in top condition. However, some parts of the building need urgent repairing and reconstruction works not to deteriorate the entire structure.


 The location where this college stands tall today had a history that is more than a century old as this location before it was constructed as a vast college in 1921. It was the location of the first city school named the  Madarsa Dar-ul-Uloom, established by Nizam Mahbub Ali Khan Asaf Jah VI in 1865. Today the exact location has come a long way from being a school to offering courses for junior colleges, UG and PG.


 While repair works and fixing of some here and their damages are currently in progress, there are talks of a state of the art building in the same location with everything that one needs to be a premium college in today's world is being planned. Furthermore, regarding celebrating 100 glorious years, the alumni of this college spread across the country and world are contacted, and lots of festivities are planned accordingly and will take place on a later date.
