A Walk In The Past

Birpara, though categorised as a rural locality, gradually developed as an important town in the Dooars through the endeavour of the people of the area. The surrounding tea gardens, established by the British, brought labourers from Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa and other parts of the country. People connected with the tea gardens have been depending on this town for years. The adjacent Birpara Tea Garden, owned by the Duncan Group of Industries, spared a part of their cultivable land for the establishment of Birpara town many years ago.

Our Student Strength

The college has approximately 3,000 students enrolled in the academic year 2015-2016. The college has produced toppers, distinction scholars, and students securing 1st Class every year.

Our Future Plans

The college was established with the stream Commerce (General) with English and Bengali in the year 1986. A major part of local students were deprived from pursuing education in the humanities for more than 10 years. The college authorities still feel the need for introducing science stream and certain job-oriented courses as well as some other popular subjects for the benefit of the students.
