Principal & President Desk


Situated at the cross point between Kalyani and Kanchrapara, Kanchrapara College, established in 1972, under the entrepreneurship of the then MLA of the area, Hon’ble Sri Jagdish Chandra Das, Ex-teacher, Kanchrapara High School, is still now carrying the legacy of spreading of education among the common people of the locality.

The college started its journey on 13th Nov, 1972 with a meager number of only 32 students with affiliation of only Pre-University class. In course of time the college has grown up to full maturity. The college now has a number of more than 6000 students with Honors in 21 subjects in Science, Arts and Commerce division. The class of Science and Arts stream takes place in day shift. Commerce section runs in Evening shift. Both BA general and B.Com general and Honors courses are running in Evening shift. Apart from a good number of devoted Non-Teaching Staff whose service is available for 24 hours, there is a band of highly qualified teachers whose scholarly guidance and advice is always available for the students. Besides the traditional core subjects there are also honors course in some new emerging subjects like Environmental Science, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Microbiology, Food and Nutrition, Computer Science etc. Post-Graduation in Hindi is also running in this college for a few years. The college has a Study Centre under the Distance Education Directorate, University of Kalyani where M.A. in Bengali, English, History and Education is taught in the same premises on Sundays and Holidays. With all the basic amenities like Students’ Common Room, Gymnasium, Playground, Net Resource Centre etc the College each year attracts a large number of students from the surrounding areas and makes its presence felt in the academia by the good results each year the students attain.


Kanchrapara College, a NAAC – Accredited (B+) institution of higher learning was founded in the year 1972 under my captaincy and is presently recognized as one of the leading colleges of the University of Kalyani with multidisciplinary courses such as Science, Arts, Commerce in day and evening shifts with around 6000 regular students on roll.

Teaching is provided in undergraduate Hons. & general courses in most of the subjects in Science, Arts, & Commerce and also in Post-Graduate courses in Hindi. Introduction of under graduate Hons. course in Philosophy and Post-graduate courses in Bengali and Commerce are also in the pipeline.

In this era of globalization, Information Technology, Nano Technology, Biotechnology and Space Technology, the college has already introduced Hons. in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology, Microbiology, Environmental Science and Food & Nutrition to develop students’ areas of interest and consequent placement in related fields. Our main objective is to prepare students in terms of knowledge, skill and entrepreneurship and innovation so that they can apply their knowledge, skill, professionalism and learning in a manner that they can distinguish themselves from others and get involved in doing welfare to mankind and earning revenue for themselves and society.

Students of the college secure highest marks and stands toppers in undergraduate and postgraduate examination of Kalyani University. The faculty of this college comprise highly qualified band of teachers who are actively involved in research activities in India and abroad and are dedicatedly involved in teaching and learning.

Special emphasis is also given to the backward students belonging to SC/ST/MINORITIES and also physically challenged students with special coaching system under the schemes adopted by UGC.

Distance postgraduate teaching of Arts subjects of K.U. at Kanchrapara College Center has also been introduced since 2007 and is still continuing with more than 3000 students.

These students of my college actively take part in seminars, symposia, educational tours, cultural programmes, debates and intra-college, inter-college and inter-states sports and games competitions and get medals and certificates of honor in considerable numbers.

I do believe that Kanchrapara College will continue to hold up its mission and vision and play a positively significant role in the sphere of education and learning in near future.
