The eventful career of the Netaji Nagar College began on the 25th of September, 1967 with evening classes arranged in the premises of the Netaji Nagar Vidyamandir. Construction of the college building began within three years’ time. A corpus of fund to finance the building was created with a sum of one lakh and fourteen thousand rupees, quite a handsome amount by the standards of the time. People from all walks of life contributed to the fund. A measure of people’s urge for making a success of the college can be had from the fact that the common man’s small donations, of one or two rupees each, added up to quite a significant portion of the corpus.Netaji Nagar College has celebrated 50 long years of tireless striving for knowledge which enriches the mind and ameliorates the soul.


About the College

The institution has developed a distinctive identity of its own in the southern fringes of the city. It has been absolutely unrelenting in its efforts to reach out to the students of the area, especially the ones coming from the economically vulnerable sections of the society.The institution went for its first cycle of NAAC assessment in 2007 and came out with flying colours. We were confident enough that we could do much better in the second cycle, though it is generally perceived to be extremely tough. We had our ‘tryst’ with destiny in 2016 when we plunged for the second cycle of assessment. We had our share of goose bumps. We knew we had to cross the bridge; no matter how difficult it appeared at that point of time. The Institution, as a well-oiled cohesive unit took the plunge and eventually emerged triumphant. It was indeed a superlative performance by us. We were accredited B+, a huge improvement on our first cycle performance. Impressed by our performance, the NAAC peer team recommended introduction of post-graduation courses in Commerce, Bengali Language and Literature and Economics. These intend was an emphatic seal on us as a formidable centre for learning.The Union human resource development ministry has sanctioned Rs 2 crore each to 58 state-aided colleges in Bengal under RUSA for development of higher education in the state. Netaji Nagar College is foremost among the colleges to have been selected for this programme. We are spending this granted amount to enhance new facilities, modernise the laboratories, renovate and to expand existing buildings and also on the procurement of equipment such as computers and purchase of books and journals to upgrade libraries.
