The long basin of the river Ganges covers almost the entire states of northern and a vast part of Eastern India before its confluence with the Bay of Bengal. Diamond Harbour in the district South 24 Parganas is a charming part of this vast river basin just before the estuary of the river with the bay. And if one looks from that beautiful riverside towards the Diamond Harbour town, one will find a large building with its 61-year long heritage surrounded by a soothing natural environment. This is Fakir Chand College (the largest college in the district) with all its greenery and natural tranquillity, an ideal ambience conducive to the pursuit of higher education. Public transport arrangements are also equally friendly to attract students.
