Barasat Government College - BGC

Barasat Government College owes its birth to a historical disaster – the partition of Bengal and the consequent deluge of displaced people into a border state. A substantial section of the uprooted belonged to a class which depended on formal education for its very subsistence and the government of the state selected the town of Barasat as the location of a new college. Three isolated two-story building in the grounds of Barasat Government School, used to provide hostel facilities to both Hindu and Muslim boys, were requisitioned to the purpose. The ground floors of the buildings were used as class rooms, while accommodation was found for the college office, the principal's room, the teachers' room and the library on the second floors of the three scattered buildings.The college was affiliated to the University of Calcutta; the only course offered was the Intermediate (Arts); to begin with, there were less than thirty students. Later, the equivalent Higher Secondary course (in both the Arts and Science streams) were taught till 1998-1999. The college library started with 50 books.In 1956, citizens of the locality formed the “Govt. College Upgradation Committee for Degree College” to work for the upgradation of the institution to Degree College, and succedeed in establishing an Arts section from 1956-57. Space for a science section could not be immediately found, but the Intermediate course in  biology was started from 57-58, practical classes in 1st floor of one of the buildings.In 1962, the College was shifted to its new building comprising of the office, Principal's chamber, Professors' room and the library. Soon after that the degree course in different science subjects commenced of which Honours curricula were taught in Physics and Chemistry at the second floor of the Science building.In 1993, the present science building was inaugurated where the departments of Physics, Mathematics, Geography and Bengali were shifted later. In 1996-97, Honours courses were introduced in the departments of Botany, Zoology and Economics. Later in 2003, the department of Botany was elevated to the status of Post-graduate department and achieved its academic autonomy in 2004. Presently the college is affiliated to the West Bengal State University and offers Honours courses in 13 different humanities and science subjects and autonomous Post Graduate courses in four subjects viz. Botany, Zoology, Physics and Bengali.
