From the Desk of the Principal

Fakir Chand College, a premier College of the District South 24 Parganas, was established in the year 1948. The College is affiliated to the University of Calcutta.  It stands on the bank of the river Hooghly in salubrious surroundings free from the din and bustle of urban life.  The ambience is highly suited to serve the noble and expanding needs of higher education.  The College celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 1997 befitting its reputation as a centre of excellence in South 24 Parganas. Its fabulously green environment with low pollution level is really a treasure to all.  The College is housed in spacious buildings having bright and airy classrooms.


The College has a history of being served by experienced and able administrator with active cooperation from highly motivated, dedicated teaching and non-teaching staff.  The educational and emotional needs of students, keeping in view their economic backwardness and rural background, are well taken care of.  Utmost care is taken to cater to the needs of every student’s immediate and future professional requirements.


“Aims” and “Goals” are two ambitious words that define the pursuits of, perhaps, every academic institution.  Fakir Chand College is no exception.  But our institution has realized dreams and taught the students to dream big.  To cater to their ambition we have always believed in an intimate connection between humanitarianism and education.  Our most important concern now-a-days is to strike a balance between this education and human life.


Our College is motivating the students to walk on that track and we are offering through the courses as well as through the quality teaching a peep into the world’s problems and matters of worth.  It is true; that in all cases we cannot realize those dreams in the contemporary context, but Fakir Chand College is trying its best to live up to the expectations it has itself created.  Guiding the students to be respectful towards their Alma matter it is trying to instil in them both imagination and practical knowledge so that they succeed in life.


Much has been done, yet; still more needs to be done.  The College is ready to be a “partner-in-progress”, receiving all sorts of cooperation from teaching and non-teaching staff of the institution.
