Patna College - PC

Patna College is the oldest institution of Bihar for providing higher education in the state. It has left a deep impact on the life of the people here. Most of the important Colleges of Patna namely, Law College, Engineering College, Science College and Vanijya Mahavidyalaya were initially part and parcel of Patna College and that is why Patna College is often referred to as the ‘mother of all institutions. Patna College was established in 1863. This College envisaged the educational ideals of the twentieth century. Accordingly, this institution had to develop holistically, keeping in mind a total development, both intellectual and social and carved out, as a result a unique status of its own. For many years, Patna College had been the only institution to impart Post-Graduate teaching in Arts and achieved excellence in Graduate and Under-Graduate teaching. After the bifurcation of the old Patna University on January 2, 1952, two new universities namely Patna University and Bihar University were established. This marked a new era for Higher Education in Bihar. Till January 1952, Patna College was a Government College and worked as an autonomous body. Later it became a constituent of Patna University. From henceforth it remained an Under-Graduate institution only as the university took the responsibility of PG teaching upon itself. Today it remains the most popular co-educational College for teaching Arts. Patna College became the centre for Honours teaching for all the constituent Colleges of Patna University and some of the most experienced teachers were welcomed to engage classes there.

  • The college was ‘the mother of colleges in Patna University’, as it gave birth to Patna Law College, Bihar College of Engineering (Now NIT), Patna Science College, Patna Training College and Prince of Wales Medical College (Now PMCH).
  • As J N Sarkar and J C Jha recorded in their work, “A History of the Patna College”, six students appeared in the (first) BA examination. Two students, K C Bannerji and S C Bannerji, passed in the first division, two failed due to poor marks in English and Mathematics, and one did not continue the examination due to illness.
  • In 1937-38, H R Batheja, the principal of the college, could proudly exclaim, “Patna College is the Oxford of Bihar with no Cambridge to compete with”. J K Rogers was the only ‘Professor’ among the early teaching staff, who taught several subjects like English literature, British history, mathematics and mental philosophy. The first Indian to be appointed as the ‘Professor’, as distinct from ‘Master’, was Nobin Chunder De.
