Established in 1947 Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College is one of the most renowned colleges of the state under the aegis of University of Calcutta. The founder Principal of the college Sri Bijoy Krishna Bhattacharya, a visionary, started the college with only a handful of girl students in the premises of Bhavani Girls’ School and the college was then known as Howrah Girls’ College.
On his demise the college was renamed after its founder Principal. With its humble beginning the college flourished through its journey of more than 70 years and at present boasts a basket of 27 departments which is perhaps the largest in terms of academic discipline in a college under CU. There is no doubt that Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College Howrah has successfully enlightened generations of women to such a degree that they have emerged as triumphant empowered individuals both at home and in the world.
The achievements of our students speak for themselves. Many of our students have topped University examinations; some have been awarded medals and prizes in sports and other competitions. The students are also involved in social activities through National Service Scheme befitting their social responsibilities. Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College Howrah has always prioritised pursuit of knowledge, which is not confined to the pages of a text book.
