History of Chandur

The land at Chandur was given to the Salesians by Bp Mathew Cheriankunnel who continued to support the Salesian mission with great zeal even later. The idea of a college in that remote part of Nalgonda was inspired by the model of Tirupattur college. Fr T.J. and the pioneers (Frs M.A. Jacob and K.T.Jose) envisioned the place to be transformed just as the Salesian college in Tirupattur did to that place.

Don Bosco Junior College, Chandur began to be operational by 1985, of course in two shed constructed temporarily for the first batch of students. The Salesians had arrived a year before. The attempt to obtain a government grant for the college never succeeded due to a clause which left us behind by two years. The recognition and grant was issued for colleges which commenced by 1883.
