    The Koti Women’s College in Hyderabad, which recently became Telangana MahilaViswavidyalayam, will be celebrating its centenary year next month. To mark the occasion, several year-long events have been planned.

    The college was established in 1924 on September 3 in Koti. It was later moved to Golden Threshold in 1939 and then to its current location, the Koti Residency, in 1950. The college started with 63 acres of land, but some of it was given to the Osmania Medical College.
