True to tell, the people of Katwa then squarely refused to accept the proposal of an offshoot college at Katwa but the truth was that the govt policy of dispersal scheme itself was enough to enthuse their minds an acclaimed social leader Late Jitendra Nath Maitra was the pioneer, and he was later joined by many distinguished personalities of the locality, notable among them were Prof P N Mukherjee, Prof S N Banerjee, Dr P N Bandyopadhya, Prof S P Mukherjee, Dr Haramohan Sinha and the renowned Bengali poets like Kalidas Roy and Kumud Ranjan Mallick who threw their weight behind the establishment of a college at Katwa. Their sincere and indefatigable efforts took on a tangible from with the inauguration of the college on 16th august 1948. To begin with the college was started as an intermediate college housed in surya narayan memorial hall of K D Institution with around 140-150 students. As a unique example of co-operation towards the growth of higher educational institution,the people of this locality then donated not less than Rs32000/- (thirty two thousand) the present currency valuation being at least ten times. Not only that the then Managing Committee of KDI donated to the college authorities a concrete building of four rooms and a portion of the school land which a part of the existing main building of the college was erected thereafter the college authorities made no mistake to take up the right measures at the right moment with the result that in 1959 the college achieved the status of a full fledged undergraduate college along with its affiliation to the UGC as well as sanction of a building grant Rs 1,95,000/- there form. Withstanding the wear and tear of time and two devastating floods,the College now stands with towering glory to fulfill the mission and the vision of the organizers. The College was initially affiliated to Calcutta University until Burdwan University was established on 16th June 1960. Its inclusion into 2(f) and 12(B) categories under UGC act 1956 took place in 1959 it now enjoys grant in aid financial status under govt of west Bengal besides the achievements of the statutory status the college has been untiringly and sincerely carrying on its mission and maintaining a steady pace of progress in precept of advancement of learning the college by this time has increased its faculty strength to 58 full time teachers and 30 part time teachers the college sprawling over 10 acres of land consists of four adjucunt campus the campus comprises the main building.
