Situated in the prime locality of South Kolkata, Prafulla Chandra College, has a rich legacy of providing higher education since 1955. Initially the college, known as City College, South Calcutta branch (Evening Section) was established primarily to offer opportunities of higher education to students who had no alternative but to simultaneously earn and learn. The college started with the aim to provide commerce education to male students; with growing demands the college was converted into a co-educational college offering a number of subjects including five Honours courses in Commerce, Humanities and Science. In its long journey of more than 60 years, the college has produced a huge number of graduates who have later established themselves in the society and are revered in their own fields.In the second cycle of NAAC assessment, the college has been graded with ‘B+’.
As a progressive initiative, the college has introduced regular Post-graduation course in Commerce under the University of Calcutta. The college has already adopted a number of technology-enabled infrastructural facilities including office automation, online admission, students database management system a long back. It is now in the process of adopting modern and updated technology in all spheres of teaching, learning, evaluation, administration with management information system and accordingly initiating its infrastructural development. The college plans to introduce new subjects, upgrade existing general courses to honours level and initiate more post graduation courses. It also aspires to introduce a research centre.
The college believes not only in academic excellence, but also in instilling traditional values among the students so as to ensure their holistic development that might enable themselves to achieve their goals in life. While the college is committed to provide all possible facilities and support to its students,it is the zeal and dedication of the students that can raise the college to new heights. I hope that our students will succeed in every walk of life and maintain the glory of the college and turn our dreams into reality.
