Nehru Memorial Government Degree College is situated in a serene atmosphere, on a hillock near Joginath temple in Jogipet town. Previously jogipet was in Medak district, and with the formation of Telangana state in 2014, presently it comes under Sangareddy district. Jogipet and Andole are two sleepy twin towns located in rural Indian landscape. They are just sixty kilo metres away from the metropolitan city Hyderabad, but the people lead a life of rustic innocence, which reflects that of a typical South Indian village style.
The economy is primarily based on agricultural background; rice, cotton, sugar cane, maize are the major crops grown in the locality. The agriculture is mainly based on rain fall, as there is no other water source. The river Manjeera in the vicinity could cater only to some of the needs of the numerous villages situated along the length of it. Most of the students come from agricultural background, and hence participate in land farming activities whenever necessary, as a support to their parents.
The literacy rate of jogipet town is 70 percent, which stands a little above the state literacy rate of 66%. However the surrounding feedback villages show lesser literacy rate. Apart from this college, there are five junior colleges, one polytechnic college, one agricultural polytechnic college, one ITI, ten high schools and over twenty five primary schools under private and government managements in Jogipet. Most of the students those who join these educational institutions are first generation literates and commute from the surrounding villages situated around Jogipet in 40 km radius.
