The Bidhannagar College is the last but one in the line of Government colleges in West Bengal. It had a humble beginning in the year of its establishment in 1984 in Salt Lake which till then had rung with the peals of students who later on went for higher studies to renouned institutions of the country(JNU, DSE, IIM,) and abroad (University of Missourie, Atlanta,etc). Though established in a hurry ,the Bidhannagar College was modelled from its very birth as a centre of academic excellence .The reason why it began with such a slender roll strength was that its earliesst scholars had to qualify almost for the norms of the Presidency college. Since its inception it has also been open to thre Honours students only. The performances of its students in the examinations of the Calcutta University in all these years speak volumes for maintenance of the standard originally set for it by the zealous Minister of Higher education of the time. The Government of West Bengal has now come forward with a majestic plan to transform the Bidhannagar College into a college of the twenty -first century. With that end in view about 7.5 acres of prime land at the EB-Block.The foundation stone of the new structure which is already under construction, was led by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of West Bengal Shri Jyoti Basu in the year 1998. In its new form the College is to be equipped with a spacious library, large reading room annexed to it, a large auditorium, playgroundand enriched laboratories for conventional and ultra-modern subjects. The work to this end has taken a desired momentum, and that day is not far off when the students of the College would be unreservedly proud of their association with the noble institution.
