The blissful beginning of Chinmaya Mission Centre happened in 1982 at Kattakada as decided by the ardent worshippers of Swami Chinmayananda. The invitees for the meeting at Kattakada were the then Trustees of Chinmaya Mission, TVPM region. Dr. A. S. Menon (President & Director), Smt. Omana Kunjamma (Member of Trustee), Sri. R. V Tampi (Member of Trustee & Deputy Director). The meeting was presided over by Dr. A S Menon who was requested to open an English medium school under the management of Chinmaya Mission. The very thought gave birth to Chinmaya Vidyalaya Kattakada in 1983 in a rented building near Christian college, starting with 85 students from LKG to Std 2.
