In the days when the opportunities for women were scarce in Warangal, the elite of the historical city felt the need for an educational institution exclusively for women. It is because of the generous donation of their ancestral building and place by the Pingle family, Pingle Government Degree College for Women was established on 16-08- 1965 in the pastoral surroundings of Waddepally, Warangal. The institution caters to women's education. In a campus area of four acres, with two security personnel round the clock, college provides adequate security to the students. With modest strength of 67 students and 11 teaching faculty members, in the year 1965, the college today has strength of about 1500 students and 70 sanctioned teaching faculty. College celebrated its Silver Jubilee in the year 1991 and awaits Golden Jubilee celebrations in the year 2015.
The college sensing the impending challenge of many co-educational and women's colleges in private sector aspires to keep up its prestigious position by offering an exciting range of conventional, restructured, self- financed courses amply supported by certificate courses and an add-on course. The college is highly motivated to mould the disadvantaged learners into knowledged and responsible citizens, so it carries out variegated programmes of curricular, co-curricular, extra-curricular, research and extension activities. The college imparts value-based education to women to meet the modern day challenges.
During the academic year 2011, the college was assessed and re-accredited by NAAC with B grade (securing CGPA 2.79 on a 4 point scale).
College has initiated the process of autonomy. High Power Committee, from Kakatiya University visited the college on 17-07-2013. Confidential reports have been sent to UGC, New Delhi for conferment of autonomy.

The Pingles are known for their generosity and philanthropy in these parts and elsewhere. They have donated lands, property and huge funds in public causes. The family has many famous descendants. Sri Pingle Jagan Mohan Reddy had been the Honorable Justice of Supreme Court of India and Chief Justice of A.P. High Court. Subsequently he had been the Vice-Chancellor of Osmania University in seventies. He rendered honorary service informed by deep concern for the welfare of the society. Smt. J.
