Murshidabad, which was once the capital of undivided Bengal, Bihar and Orissa, is now the district only having the highest number of minorities in India and second highest percentage of minorities next to Udhampur. Also this district of West Bengal currently stands at the bottom in the area of education and culture due to insufficient educational infrastructure. Domkal, which was merely a block out of 26 blocks in the district, has become a sub-division since 1999. It comprises of 4 blocks namely, Domkal, Jalangi, Raninagar-I & II across the border of the Bangladesh. The whole area of this youngest Sub-division is backward in all socio-economic parameters compared to other Sub-divisions. The literacy rate of woman is very poor. Even the scope of higher education was very limited. Considering the situation, the district administration decided to set up two Woman Colleges with the help of MSDP Funds (Rs. 10 core each) and the Government of West Bengal decided to establish the Colleges, one at Domkal and the other at Bhabta. Subsequently, Government of India informed that this fund cannot be utilized for such Colleges but only for Junior College (i.e. up to XII Class). The Minister and MLA of Domkal in that period along with other associated persons requested to the then Minister-in-Charge, Higher Education, for sanctioning a Government aided College. The State Government agreed to the proposal and subsequently allotted 5 acres of land for this very purpose. The University of Kalyani accorded affiliation to the College in the month of 23rd February 2011.
