Sunderbans – where we serve – is one of the most challenging topologies of the mother earth, but is latent with caged potentialities in terms of both natural and human resources hoping to be unearthed today or tomorrow.

The college since its establiment in 1955 is trasmitting smiles in the Sunderbans and helping its inhabitants to reflect their potential and make them inclusive in the national mainstream.

The NAAC Peer Team during its exit meeting during 2015 applauded the college for its exempelary committment in serving the cause of underpriviledged rural people in the Suderbans.

During 2016, UGC recognised our potential to serve thousands of families in the Sunderbans and conferred upon us the status of College with Potential for Excellence. 

We are thus committed in bringing out excellence from amongst those who during their childhood had very little opportunity to nurture and reflect their potentiality for excellence as they lived in the disadvantaged locations of the islands of the Sunderbans. 

As we move ahead in Search of Excellence in the Sunderbans, we appreciate that the task of although achieveable is not very easy either.  It is difficult not because that we lack potential, but because  stakeholder of this college are constrained with several limitations and we need to overcome such limitations.

We aim at building upon our strengths and optimise our opportunities .

We surge ahead from limitations to potentials.

It is our best practices to 

    • find out the Sundarmon (the Beuatiful Minds) in the Sunderbans
    • bring inclusiveness within diversity 

We seek to build menotoring to be distinctiveness

The drive towards excellence in essence is sustained initiatives towards quality enhancement and thus requires change amongst all stakeholders towards their value addition.

        • Not all stakeholders prefer a change and thus results in a change resistance which limits the move towards excellence
        • Many stakeholders lack the concept of tomorrow and thus fails to adept to futuristic goals 
        • Many stakeholders lives with parochial mindsets and thus fails to aim at holistic goals


                • As a RUSA beneficiary the college is building new infrastructure building and infrastructural renovations
                • Being conferred with CPE status the college move forward towards qualitative developments
                • The introduction of choice based credit system providing opportunity towards systematic academic development.
                • The campus being free from trespassing has the ambience conducive for holistic development of students


                The college is located in a geographically disadvantaged place.

                      • This makes daily commuting to the college a daunting task as it is time consuming
                      • Daily commutatiom to the college is expensive (for the students) thus students generally have very less propensity to come to the college regularly 
                      • The college also cannot extend the college hours beyond 10 AM to 4 PM.
