Principal's Desk

Vidyanagar College is affiliated to the University of Calcutta. It is located on the road joining Amtala and Budge Budge to Bishnupur, Block-II in the District of South 24-Parganas, some thirty kilometres away from Esplanade, the administrative and commercial hub of the city of Kolkata. The college, though only a little away from the south-west fringes of the metropolis, is situated entirely in a rural setting amidst lush pastures. The college came into being on 29 July, 1963 as the unflinching zeal and social commitment of visionaries of the locality as late Sri Dhirendranath Bera and late Sri Harendranath Majumder.

Founded on 29th July 1963, Vidyanagar College has traversed half a century of its chequered existence through the travails of times, undaunted in giving shape to the aspirations and yearnings of a predominantly rural community, though despairingly challenged socially and economically, resilient enough to dream and deliver. The institution was established as a result of the relentless efforts of the late Dhirendranath Bera and the late Harendranath Majumdar, who were committed to the holistic development of the young people in its fold, instilling in them a sense of dignity and self-respect through providing quality education at the tertiary level. Since its very inception Vidyanagar College has been persevering for a sustained holistic development of its vast rural and suburban hinterland, envisioning a paradigm shift in the mindset and mores.

The Objective of the College, advancement of learning, strongly manifests the spirit of Education for Empowerment. Accordingly, Vidyanagar College ever since its inception has empowered thousands of young people, particularly those displaced from the erstwhile East Pakistan and also those belonging to the backward communities of the area.
