Vijaygarh Jyotish Ray College - VJRC Kolkata - VJRC

In 1950, Vijaygarh Jyotish Ray College came into existence as part of a larger historical reality known as the Partition of Bengal. The newly arrived rootless immigrants from the erstwhile East Bengal refused to surrender to their destiny, and built the college with a mission - a mission which still remains unique in many ways in the educational map of West Bengal to address the specific needs of a particular part of society, and disseminate basic education among them. Vijaygarh Jyotish Ray College is located in the Jadavpur area bordered by Saktigarh, Pallisree, Sree Colony, Golf Green and Vikramgarh. It covers an area of approximately two square miles and living within the colony today are approximately 15,000 inhabitants. The land was originally owned by the United State Army and by a private Zamindar. Although the settlement of this land by first refugees in 1946 appears to be in line with the classic pattern of Jabardakhal, there was actually much behind-the-scene negotiations with the government on the part of veteran freedom fighter Santoshkumar Dutta who had a land deed to occupy the land. There were secret instructions to the police not to disturb those squatters, but there were frequent police raids and the constant presence of plainclothes policemen. The Zamindar, however, had not given his tacit approval to the settlement, and there were constant confrontations with his hired hoodlums. Despite these bloody raids, the squatters felt that by fending off the onslaught of invaders, they had won a significant battle. In recognition of this pride, they named the colony Vijaygarh which means "Victory Fort".
