Govt. Aided General Degree College. Affiliated to Vidyasagar University

History of the College

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Swarnamoyee Jogendranath Mahavidyalaya, a Govt. Aided General Degree College came into existence with the approval of the Higher Education Department, Govt. of West Bengal, in the year 2014. The institution began its journey on 30th January, 2015 after receiving affiliation from Vidyasagar University.

The newly established college has successfully completed six years’ experience of imparting education in this rural locality where the ray of higher education had seldom reached before. The “Bhaumik Family” of Amdabad was instrumental in founding this college through their generous sacrifice, nobility and all-out devotion to achieve this goal. Dr.Anindya KisorBhaumik, retired Principal and the youngest son of Swarnamoyee and Jogendranath Bhaumik, deserves special mention as he pioneered the establishment of this college in revered memory of his parents and with the constant co-operation of his eldest brother Sri Amulya rattan Bhaumik, former Headmaster, social worker and freedom fighter;the second son Dr, Probodh Kumar Bhaumik, the former Head of the Department of Anthropology, University of Calcutta;the third son Sri Subodh Kumar Bhaumik, retired Headmaster; the second daughter Smt Renuka Jana, a retired headmistress, and their sons and daughters. In addition, the donations, bounties and multiple assistances of the neighbouring families are highly appreciated.

It is mentionworthy that the late Jogendranath Bhaumik, a great educationist, an immensely broad-minded man, and a social worker of great repute, led the way to spread education in backward rural areas by establishing as many as fourteen schools including the well-known Amdabad High School which originated during the British rule in India.

To commemorate the memory of this visionary man and his wife Swarnamoyee, an ideal woman and a kind-hearted, affectionate mother, who was also the source of inspiration for all such benevolent activities, this college has been set up with a special view of enlightening this rural territory which had fallen behind in today’s race for progress and development.
