Laxminarayan Mahavidyalaya was dream child of a group of dedicated persons who desires to provide a scope of higher education to aspiring youth of the locality, which is situated at a distance of about 40 Kms from district headquarters of the M.D.R. from Basta to Baliapal just in the middle. Originally named as Panchayat Samiti College in 1976, later renamed as Akshay Narayan Praharaj Smruti Mahavidyalaya, has assumed the present name because it was rescued from fiscal breakdown by a generous contribution of Rs. 50,000/- from Mr. Narayan Jena of Nepura, Ex-Reader in Oriya, Fakir Mohan College, Balasore.

The contribution of the then minister Mr. Bhopal Ch. Mohapatra & Present Minister Mr. R. N. Mohanty are also Significant. In spite of all set-backs the college owes its existence and boasts itself of brilliant academic excellence. Hos. teaching facility is available in History, Political Science, Sanskrit, Education & Economics at present at +3 Arts stage and Math, Physics and Zoology Hons. at +3 Science Stage and +2 wing has both Arts & Science streams. The Student strength is about 1500 now. About 30 efficient teachers along with 25 non-teaching personnel help to run the college smoothly. It is also a matter of pride that our college has been accredited 'B' Grade by NAAC in the year 2009.

There is no hostel accommodation for the students so far. but soon UGC funded women's Hostel going to open in the interest of girl students. The College has been affiliated to UGC both under 2f and 12B of the UGC Act-1956 in the year 2004 & 2006 respectively and the position has definitely improved as the college has been receiving financial assistance from UGC. The Government has already given permanent affiliation & concurrence to B.A. & B.Sc. Courses due to the ceaseless effort of the out going Principals so also their unconditional support and assistance.

Hope is there, that this institution shall be the Ideal one in the locality with the Passage of time with ever stronger commitment to import higher education to our rural boys & girls.
