Natham, a tiny ancient trade town is situated in the Dindigul District of Southern Tamil Nadu and is equidistant from the Lock city of Dindigul and Temple City of Madurai.

This small town situated in picturesque surroundings has about 50 villages close to it.  The major occupation of the inhabitants of this area is Agriculture and Small Scale Industries like coir making.  However, a majority of the people are agricultural farmers. Education, more so higher education has been a distant dream for many of them.

There are a couple of Government and Private Elementary, Middle, and Higher Secondary Schools in the vicinity of this place. A sizable population has had a school education alone and never an opportunity for a college education. Hence, for the rural students coming out of schools situated in this area higher education has always been a luxury as they need to trek up to Dindigul or Madurai which are approximately 50 km by road distance.

The presence of NPR Group of Institutions in their midst is a blessing to the parents belonging to this area, as it is a godsend opportunity for them to send their wards to NPR Group of  Institutions which are offering technical, Arts, and Science streams of education and also teacher education.

Realizing the urgent need for a Higher Education institution in this geographical area and keeping in mind the social responsibility of building up youth our founders started this institution.
