The institution is governed and managed as per the rules and regulations of the Government of Kerala under the supervision of the Director of Collegiate Education, Thiruvananthapuram. The financial management of the college is monitored by the Government of Kerala and the Accountant General of Kerala. The College Council with the Principal as Chairperson and the Heads of departments and elected representatives from teaching staff as members oversee the Development, Planning and Management of the institution. But it shall not interfere in any manner with the general administration of the College which is vested in the Principal, acting under the orders of the Director of Collegiate Education.
A significant advantage of the institution is that the Kerala Public Service Commission makes the selection and appointment of teaching and non-teaching staff. In order to meet the temporary shortage of staff, immediate selection is made either from the government Employment Exchanges or by an Expert Selection Committee constituted according to the government rules.
