Surendranath College for Women - SCW Kolkata - SCW

Surendranath College for Women was established in 1948, mainly for imparting higher education to girls from partition-affected families. After partition many families came from the then East Pakistan and settled in the Sealdah Railway station area and its neighbourhood.
