About Us

Basirhat College, by the side of the murmuring Ichhamati, the first fruit of independence for Basirhat, came into being on November 16, 1947. Since then it has been an active gateway of higher education for pupils coming across a vast area expanding from the wet land of Sundarbans in the north to Baduria in the south and Ghojadanga in the east to Haroa in the west. Such a long-cherished dream could not have taken practical shape without an extremely generous and visionary patronage of a noble soul, Khan Bahadur A.F.M. Abdur Rahaman. Mr. Rahaman, besides extending substantive financial support, made his dwelling place a seat for imparting knowledge to people sunk in the darkness of ignorance during the rule of the British. Initially it was an institution for students of intermediate course, i.e., for students pursuing I.A. degree.Gradually it became a degree level college offering courses for Pass Graduation in humanities and commerce. Meanwhile, the college premises have been shifted from Town Hall to Khan Bahadur’s house and finally to its present locationwith its foundation stone laid by Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukhopadhyay, an eminent educationist. Following rapid development of infrastructure, it did not take much time for science stream to be introduced.Remarkable success in university examinations, helped the college earn approval for offering honours courses and the institution which started journey as an intermediate college with a handful of students, nowruns honours courses in sixteen subjects with provisions of Post-Graduation for Bengali. Nineteen subjects are being taught in undergraduate course under the CBCS system introduced recently. The ascending graph of roll strength is soon to cross the boundary 7K.With a central library having reading and lending facilities, students do have access to the departmental libraries and Book Bank too. Initially it was Calcutta University, of late; the college has its affiliation with West Bengal State University, Barasat. The social reach of the college is ever extending with the outstanding performances of the NSS unitand students learn the lessons to serve and protect the nation through their participation in the NCC wing of the college.A hostel for male learnersstands at a distance of 20-minute walk from the college. Adjacent to the hostel, there lies a huge piece of vacant land with the provision of amultidimensional expansion of the college in near future. In the field of sports and games, the flag of Basirhat College is held high with the glorious performance of students in district and state level. Since inception, relentless effort of this institution has been directed toenable learners torealise the goal of justice and equality in every sphere of life. Number of students coming from S.C., S.T.and minority community is inspiring indeed. Again, increasing participation of female students in learning process presents an optimistic picture of future with responsible citizens having clear and distinct idea of rights to be enjoyed in proportion to their involvement with duties. A distinguished centre of education, Basirhat College is to celebrate its platinum jubilee of establishment during 2021-’22and would strive to achieve its goals with renewed energy and vigour.
