Krishnath College - KNC Murshidabad - KNC

Situated on the eastern bank of the river Bhagirathi, the 150 yrs old Krishnath college which has gathered to itself a halo bequeathed by its eminent teachers and alumuni, was originally founded by the Govt. of Bengal under East India Company on the 18th Nov. 1853 by notification no : 1913 20th Oct 1853, with the assistance of Nawab, Zaminders and a number of common people of this district although the idea of founding both the college and the University was first conceived by the visionary idealist and a Renaissance man Raja Krishnath - a dream that was not translated into reality by his cruel untimely death. However, since then the growth and development of this college have always been intimately concerned with Cossimbazar Raj family. Thus it is significant that the genesis of this Institution marked a cultural synthesis between feudalism and democracy not often dreamed of in that remote past.Mr. Harrison was the first principal of this college. On 29th July, 1863 Sir Cecil Beadon, the then lieutenant Governor of Bengal laid the foundation of the present college building a wonderful specimen of Saracenic - Gothic Architecture style. In 1865 Berhampore college attained the full status of a college with B.A and law classes. In the year 1897 the British Government handed over the college to the Honourable Maharaja Manindra Chandra Nandi and in 1903 as recorded in the Calcutta University calendar this Institute was re christened as Krishnath College. In 1856 the college came under the Govt. sponsored scheme in accordance with the U.G.C regulation, Govt. of India.Since 1853 this college fit to be declared a heritage institution has been unswervingly engaged in promoting and fostering education among the people of four districts such as Murshidabad, Nadia, Malda and Birbhum. Since the mid 19th century it was one of the main seats of Renaissance Bengal, centering this Institution Berhampore town was then turned into a nursery of Bengal Literature because the College established a creative contact with literary luminaries of 19th century Bengali like Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. Dinabandhu Mitra, Ramesh Chandra Mazumdar, Bhudeb Mukherjee and others who were all then at Berhampore for their individual occasion.It is highly gratifying to note here that this college first started Commerce Education (B.Com) in this district in keeping with the spirit of times in the decade of sixties. In post Independence period when India was developing fast in the fields of Commerce and industry it is natural that this century old college would again play the role of a path-finder in this district.In 1968 morning section of the college was opened to cope with the mounting pressure of students and in 1978 the H.S. course (10+2) was introduced owing to the pressure of the local public and the repeated request of the State Govt. In 1994 in accordance with the programme of both Central and State Government, The college started imparting Vocational Education Tourism, Sericulture, Office Management and Secretarial practice and in 1998 Netaji Open University started also functioning to illuminate the minds of socially and educationally backward and dropped student. In its long journey towards advancement of learning the introduction of these series of course of studies from time to time in compliance with the national demand is in quite fitness of things of this college because still a it holds aloft the flag of being the premier Institution for higher education in all respects in this district.
