Raniganj Girls College, Rajbari was established in the year 1980,
Raniganj Girls’ College was established in the year 1980 to cater to the growing need of a college meant exclusively for the girl students of the colliery belt keeping in mind the cosmopolitan demography of the region. In effect, however the college enrolment is geographically extended from as far as Panagarh at one extreme, to Barakar on the other. This corroborates the college’s acceptability and growing repute over the last two decades
The college is located near the well-known Searsole Rajbari at the Searsole locality of Raniganj. A working map (not to scale) is provided below for convenience.
The college can easily be reached both from Raniganj Railway Station as well as from Punjabi More on National Highway No. 2 (better known as G.T. Road) by minibuses frequently plying between Raniganj railway station and the adjoining localities. To reach the college one has to alight at Rajbari bus stop from where the college is at a walking distance. However rickshaws are also easily available at the bus stop and the fare is Rs 5/- at present.
We are relentlessly trying to meet the challenges of imparting better, updated and socially relevant education as demanded by the new age of globalization. Now we are offering honours courses in twelve subjects and a few more will be added soon. The college administration is continuously engaged in developing the infrastructural facilities for creating an academic ambience conducive to quality teaching. Incidentally, we are proud to say that at the moment, we are carrying out academic activities at the college with a strong faculty of 21 permanent teachers and a few more new teaching posts have been created which will be filled up at the earliest. Moreover, to guarantee the best standard of education we have decided to have our infrastructure, performance and potential assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Our vision is to transform this college into a pioneering educational institute of the region in the years to come.
History of the college
The college was established in 1980 as a result of relentless endeavours and liberal financial contributions of some eminent citizens of Raniganj, dedicated to the cause of spreading education especially among women. At the time of inception the college carried out its academic enterprise at the campus of Gandhi Memorial Girls’ High School and later moved for a short period to the premises of Jamunamoyee Girls’ High School. Finally it moved to its present campus at Searsole, Raniganj. Since then it has grown up into an educational institution of considerable repute with an enormous student enrolment to the tune of 1200 at the undergraduate level.
