    Brief History

    Brief History

    Initially the College was housed in Chittaranjan High School (kasba). Thereafter in 1969, the institution was shifted to Surya Sen Street.
    In the year 1974, the College moved to its present premises. It is readily accessible from both Howrah and Sealdah Stations. It is near Calcutta University and is in the heart of the city’ academic arena.

    Over the years, the College has consolidated its position as one of the premier institutions in the city, imparting learning in commerce, Computer Science and Humanities.

    Principal, Dr. Nirmalendu Nath assumed charge of the College in June 1997. Some innovative measures were taken to provide more opportunities to students in various fields. Expansion and renovation of the college premises were undertaken and a Reading Room was constructed near the library. The Library itself was refurbished with more shelves to accommodate a large number of books, current magazines and journals. A major academic step was the introduction of B.A. with Honours in English, Bengali. Thus the college now has full fledged B.A. Honours and B.A. General courses along with B.Com Honours and B. Com General courses. In order to keep abreast with trends in Information Technology, a fully air-conditioned Computer Room was constructed for the use of students.

    After the retirement of Dr. Nirmalendu Nath, Senior most teacher, Prof. Nandita Banerjee took charge as Teacher-in-charge from 1st July 2006 to 22 November 2006, and efficiently ran the college. Dr. Shyamalendu Chatterjee joined our college as Principal on 23rd November, 2006. Dr. Paramita Das took over as Teacher-in-charge from June 13, 2023. Dr. Kana Mani Mukherjee joined the college as Principal on December 22, 2023.

    From the word ‘go’, the dynamism and energy has become apparent during the growth. The College envisaged a vision of expansion wherein new streams of study/subjects were to be made available to the students. The Placement Cell arranged for various campus interviews and several students have already been selected and placed. More faculty members for the various departments of the college were incorporated.

    The administration has a positive approach in matter relating to students and encourages students’ achievements. Qualified and experienced teachers motivate students, provide counseling and assist the administration in the smooth running of academic affairs. The non-teaching staff of the college is equally supportive and helpful to students. Efforts are on the procure land, building for the further expansion of the college.

    We hope to reach new heights under the balanced and bold leadership of our principal, who believes in ‘dynamism is the spirit of life’.
