Principal’s Speak


I wish to take this opportunity to reach out to the thousands of students willing to take admission to our college and to their guardians to say a few words about “Barasat College”.We, at Barasat College,believe that our collge is a source of pride not only for Barasat but also for the North 24 Parganas as well as for West Bengal.The institution though young in age (established in 1972 ), has already got the Accreditation of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and has started playing a pivotal role in catering quality education to students hailing from the nearby localities as well as from the remote villages of the North 24 Parganas district. Most importantly students from all communities, caste and creed have given this Institution a truly cosmopolitan character and a unique distinction. This institution which started only with the Commerce stream now provide multy faculty streams.Students may opt for Arts,Science or Commerce courses for an honours or a general degree from West Bengal State University. The college is also a study centre of Rabindra Bharati University under the Distance Education programme,which at present offers Post graduate courses in Bengali,English,Sanskrit,Education,Geograohy,Environmental Studies,History,Political Science, and Master in Social Work (MSW). Only thirty nine years of its journey this institution has marched ahead in all spheres and has achived many a success .The success rate of the students in their respective examinations are commandable. The alumni of this college are either mostly settled in well positions in the various jobs or are well provided in their lives.Established in the rented premises in the year 1972 with a small number of students.The college is now in posission of three buildings of its own-two three storied and the other four storied with the accomodation of nearly 3000 students.The college has integrated itself with the society through extensive activities for rural development with particular reference to education,health,self reliance and social awareness.We are committed to provide all aminities and facilities to our students and sincere efforts are being made to inprove infrastructural facilities, among others.To add to these facilities,a piece of land measuring 24 cattahs (appro.) has been purchased adjacent to the college building wherein, a hostel for students, among others, will be proposed to be set up.A new floor in a three storied building will also proposed to be built up to provide more class rooms to the prospective students with the aid from government grants and/or grants from M.P./M.L.A. of Barasat.I take privilege to acknowledge the contribution and relentless effort of individuals from all walks of life,who deserve full credit for these numerous achivements and developments..I also convey my heartfelt gratitude to the Teaching staff, the Non Teaching staff and the Students who have nurtured the college and helped this Institution to grow in stature. Needless to say, this the beginning of our journey. I am confident that in the years to come, this institution, with the help and co-operation of all, will emerge as a pioneer Institution in providing excellent education to the coming generations and will achieve premier status as an ” Institute of Excellence” for occupying an important site in the Educational map of West Bengal. In fine, I appeal to the students to observe college discipline strictly and to ensure to fulfil the ideal : ” The college is yours – Be proud of your college and let us be proud of you.”
