Nehru Memorial College, Puthanampatti was established in the year 1967. It was founded by Late Shri. Mookka Pillai was a great philanthropist whose selfless spirit prompted him to take up the mission and vision of spreading higher education as early as 1942.

The great philanthropist and visionary Late Thiru. Mookka Pillai conceived a noble idea of providing education to the children of peasants, the downtrodden, and the poor section of the rural society and implemented it in the year 1942 by establishing a middle school in the rural village of Puthanampatti. He had put his heart and soul in addition to his hard-earned money into imparting education to the rural mass of the village. During the Pre-independence days, the founder had a great reverence for Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and hence the school was named after our nation's first Prime Minister. The school was upgraded to a High school in the year 1948. His other brainchild called Nehru Basic Training School paved the way for promoting a teacher in every house of the village in and around Puthanampatti.

The undaunted spirit of the unlettered genius did not satisfy himself with school education alone. He envisaged yet another noble cause of imparting higher education to the people in and around Puthanampatti and his dream was realized in 1967 in the form of Nehru Memorial College.
