Ramnagar College - RC
Initially Ramnagar College was housed in the school-building of Depal Baneswar Charubala Vidyamandir.In those critical days,the founder-Principal Sri Sripati Charan Pradhan, with some benevolent charitable persons and land donors including some teachers and non-teaching personnel and local youth came forward and took initiative with missionary spirit and dedicating outlook to establish this college.The college owes its glorious birth to the sincere and active leadership of Late Sripati Charan Pradhan who collected the donation in cash and procured a land of 17 Bighas from the gracious and liberal local donors of whom Sripati Charan Pradhan himself and Late Prafulla Kr.Patra need a special mention. On this land, on the auspicious day of Rathajatra (02.07.1973), the foundation stone of this College was laid down by Dr.S.N.Sen, the former Honourable V.C. of Calcutta University. Historically,Ramnagar College was founded on the 9th September in 1972 and its affiliation was granted by the University of Calcutta upto P.U. and B.A. standard for the first time.The college was granted extension of affiliation in B.Com (Pass) and B.Sc (Pass) by C.U. in 1973 and 1980 respectively. H.S. course in Arts, Science and Commerce was introduced in 1977. However, in pursuance of the all-Indi policy to attach the plus-Two section with schools rather than colleges, the State Government notified the discontinuance of H.S. section and accordingly there is no H.S. section in the college at present. In 1981, Vidyasagar University was established and Ramnagar College came under it.
