It is prestigious to head a premier institute like Barasat Government College with its history of high academic standards and its leading role in the advancement of education in the post-Independence period. Situated in an advantageous location in the district headquarter of North 24 Parganas, at the core of the communication network of the region, the college attracts students from a wide area and from varied socio-economic background – a good number of whom come from the rural or semi-urban areas. Its initial affiliation was to the University of Calcutta, but since 2008 it is functioning under the West Bengal State University and has effectively implemented the ‘choice-based credit system’ since 2018.
