Welcome to Govt Degree College Balakot
Government college Balakot was inaugurated in 1975 by the approval of government of N.W.F.P(K.P.K) and initially started in GHS Balakot. Up to four years the subjects of humanities at inter level were being taught in the same building. The college was shifted to its new building in 1979 when construction process was almost completed. The commencement of pre-medical classes was started in this new building. In 1980 the pre- engineering classes were also initiated. In 1980 the college was upgraded from Inter to degree level. In the beginning the degree level was restricted to Arts classes but as soon as the science block building was completed, B.Sc classes was also initiated. In the horrible disaster of 8th October 2005, earth quake, the building of college was completely destroyed and in those circumstances the classes were started in tents which were provided by Pak army.
After that with the cooperation of C.O HAIER Company Mr. Shah Mehmood Afridi shelters were constructed for college building. In 2011, the construction of new R.C.C building (phase 1 ) was started with the cooperation of ERRA. The classes were shifted in this new well furnished building in 2014.
