About Us

Champadanga, an affluent village of Tarakeswar block in the Hooghly district, is a very famous hub of good trade and commerce. Old Benaras Road (Auhalyabai Road) passes through Champadanga. It is about 20 km east of Arambag and 8 kilometres west of Tarakeswar. The place is well-connected to Kolkata and Howrah through bus-routes and railways.

From very early on, Champadanga had a steady economy based on the opulent vegetation of the area. But sadly for the local people, they missed out on higher educational opportunities. Fortunately, it was in 1961 and on the memorable birth-centenary of Rabindranath Tagore that a group of social workers, businessmen and educationists of the locality decided to set up a Degree College with a dream of bringing higher education to the doors of the locals. For this purpose, they formed a Preparatory Committee with the following members - Prasad Chandra Mandal (President), Nityananda Adhikari (Secretary up to 04.11.1971), Prof. Amarendranath Adak (Secretary on and from 05.11.1971), Nandalal Dutta, Panchkari Pal, Prankrishna Mondal, Baidyanath Dutta, Sukdeb Dutta, Amiya Kumar Gupta, Ajit Kumar Maji, Sk. Answar Ali Middya, Santimohan Roy, Ramsingha Pal, Ramen Maitra, Lalitmohan Hazra, Sk. B.J.Naskar, Sk. Goni Middya and Kashinath Mondal.

From then on, it took a few years to select a suitable place for erecting the college building. At that time, Late Netai Charan Hazra and his wife Late Phelubala Hazra jointly donated a princely sum of Rs/. 20,000 along with a plot of 307 ‘Sataks’ of land by the eastside of the Old Benaras Road, about 1.5 km. away from Champadanga bus stop. A great number of local persons from different strata of society also came forward with their invaluable donations and timely help. A two-storied building on the northern side of the big pond of the donated area was built under the supervision of the Preparatory Committee. Finally, our college ‘Rabindra Mahavidyalaya’, affiliated to the University of Burdwan officially started its journey on and from 8th November 1971. We heartily remember all those founder fathers, social workers, educationists, businessmen, and a host of well-intended persons for their honest contributions in setting up this college and fulfilling their vision of making on enlightened, informed, and the confident local community a reality.

Initially, only eight students were admitted to the Pre-University course and twenty-five students to the B.Com Pass course. The official status of the institution was that of an undertaking college and the teacher and the non-teaching staff did not get their salary from the Government. Only in lieu of a ‘pocket allowance’, they were shouldering the great task of running the new-born college with utmost sincerity.

Then it was in the academic session of 1972-73 that the B.A. course in the Pre-University and Degree level started. In the decade of the ’80s of the preceding century, a steady inflow of funds in the form of various monetary aids granted to this institution either by the State government or by the University Grants Commission or by similar such agencies made it possible for fast-paced development of the different wings of the institution. Only after four decades since its inception, the college now has a pretty long list of assets to its credit, viz. five big buildings, two new buildings (under construction), a fairly spacious Library with a reading room, a beautiful playground, separate courts for playing volleyball, basketball and badminton, cycle-sheds, multi-gym, a potable water system and so on. The lush green backdrop and a big pond in the middle with thickly foliaged shady trees along its embankment truly evoke the bygone charms of a pastoral setting.

The dream has become a reality. It has now a student population of nearly four thousand and they are offered quite a remarkable list of 16 Honours and 18 General subjects to choose from. They are also provided with other academic facilities like the Learning Resource Centre, Computerized Library Facility, Career Counselling Cell, Smart Digital Classroom, etc. for their benefit. As a result, in the arena of higher education of the district, the students of Rabindra Mahavidyalaya, mostly hailing from the local peasant community, are able to make glorious marks at various levels of University examinations and other competitive tests and put their Alma Mater very high on the scale of excellence.  This is also borne out by the fact of achieving the grade of B++ as part of the re-accreditation recently undergone in the institution and carried out by the national academic benchmarker, National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).
