Basirhat College, a premier College of the District North 24 Parganas, was established in the year 1947. The College was initially affiliated to the University of Calcutta but with the formation of West Bengal State University in 2008, it is now affiliated to this new University. It stands on the bank of the river Ichhamoti in salubrious surroundings free from the din and bustle of urban life. The ambience is highly suited to serve the noble and expanding needs of higher education. The College celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 1996 befitting its reputation as a center of excellence in North 24 Parganas. Its fabulously green environment with low pollution level is really a treasure to all.
The College has a history of being served by experienced and able administrator with active co-operation from highly qualified and dedicated teaching and non-teaching staff. The educational and emotional needs of students, keeping in view of their economic backwardness and rural background, are well taken care of. Utmost care is taken to cater to the needs of every student's immediate and future professional requirements. We are dedicated to our pledge to work more responsibly, more positively and more resourcefully for the progress, betterment and refinement of our students, teachers, staff and community at large.
