Admission Notices

    Birla College Of Science and Birla College of Education were established in 1968 as two separate institutions. In 1969 the two institutions were amalgamated into one college under the name and style of Birla College Of Science and Education. With effect from the 1st July 1987, it is renamed as Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose College. This is non-govt. Educational college by the pay packet scheme of the State Govt. The college is also listed for grants under the 2F scheme of the U.G.C. The establishment of Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose College can possibly be traced back to the year 1968, when the Calcutta University approved the affiliation of the twine institutions namely Birla College of Science and Birla College of Education simultaneously bearing the address, 2 Moira Street, Calcutta – 17 being established and organized by the then trustee of Vidya Mandir Society and Junior Hindi School under the control of the Birla Group. In 1969 the institutions were amalgamated in one college under the name and style of Birla College of Science and Education. On March 16, 1978, a notice of acquisition was published under the Land Acquisition Act in respect of 1/1A, 1/1B and 1/1C Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road for expansion of the school building of Vidya Mandir Society as the said premises at 1/1A, 1/1B and 1/1C Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road were lease rented to the authority of Vidya Mandir Society for 21 years on and from January 1, 1959. But just after two months the Junior Hindi High School was shifted to 2 Moira Street, Calcutta – 17, while the Birla College of Science and Education officially started using the premises at 1/1A, 1/1B and 1/1C Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road on and from May 15, 1978.Take over of the college by Dept. of Education, Govt. of West Bengal

    Shortly after that the Birla Management officially handed over the authority of the college to Late Prof. Shambhu Ghosh, the then Minister-in-Charge of Higher Education, Government of West Bengal, India on some time of August, 1978. As a follow-up action, the Government of West Bengal appointed one Administrator and converted the college as a Government Sponsored College.
    Acquisition of the College by Govt. West Bengal In the pursuit of the Government’s deal for converting the college as a Government College, the Calcutta University took over the management of the College by appointing Prof. S. R. Das as the administrator on and from May 19, 1979 and a bill was raised before the legislative assemble for permanent take over the management of the college by converting it as a Government College. But the bill is still awaiting the kind approval of the Hon’ble President of India. In the mean time, the management of the college is brought under the pay packet scheme of Government of West Bengal and is guided as per the Calcutta University first statute 1979 and a Governing Body was formed with the Principal as the Secretary of the Governing Body. At the same, the college is newly named as Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose College.

    On the other hand, the land acquisition proceedings was abandoned by the Government on the ground that Vidya Mandir Society showed their unwillingness for acquiring the land through a letter to the Government dated August 8, 1979. But as the lease-period is going to be over by December 31, 1979, a notice of Requisition was made by the Government of West Bengal on December 26, 1979, which was further challenged by the then land owner Late Sailesh Kumar Bose and others at the early of 1980 in front of Hon’ble High Court of the Government of West Bengal. The so-called legal battle continues for more than two decade and ultimately ended by the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India followed by judgement of the Hon’ble High Court of West Bengal. Being accorded with that judgement the Higher Education Department, Government of West Bengal, acquired the land homeshead and building of the College through the first land acquisition collector and handed over the possessions on 09.10.02 and 23.02.04.
    Land Registration Immediately after receiving the possession the Governing Body of the college put their entire endeavour for amalgamation and mutation of the lands by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation. The three plots at 1/1A, 1/1B and 1/1C Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road were amalgamated on 02.09.05 as a single address 1/1A Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road, Kolkata 700020. The mutation of the said premise was also made at the same time. Finally, a deed of conveyance of the premises was registered on 18.09.06 by the Registrar of Assurances.

    The so-called history of development of the college with its origin at Vidya Mandir Society and Junior Hindi High School rulled by the Birla Group, definitely demands salute from all corners of the society. The long standing battle was only fought by the unified synchronizing of thoughts and effort of the teaching staff and the employees with the constant impetus and interest of the Higher Education Department, Government of West Bengal.
