About Acharya Girish Chandra Bose College

Acharya Girish Chandra Bose College, Kolkata was established in 1964.

The Acharya Girish Chandra Bose, formerly known as Bangabasi College of Commerce is affiliated to University of Calcutta, West Bengal.  It is affiliated to 3 year Degree course in Commerce (General & Hons) and 3 year Degree Course in English & Bengali (Hons.)

Late Acharya Girish Chandra Bose, the eminent educationist and great Social Reformer was the founder of Bangabasi College. Mr. Bose established the institutions Bangabasi School (1885 AD.) and Bangabasi College (1887 AD.) with the sole objective of promoting the cause of education in Bengal during the nineteenth century renaissance in India.

 After the independence of India in 1947 A.D. there was an influx of young talents from the then East Bengal (now Bengladesh) and elsewhere. In order to accommodate them as well as to ease the tremendous pressure of admission to the College three new shifts like Morning, Evening and Commerce had to be opened. Ultimately following the Phase Reduction Scheme of U.G.C., the three independent shifts were converted into (1) Bangabasi Morning College, (2) Bangabasi Evening College housed in the same complex of Bangabasi College and (3) Bangabasi College of Commerce housed in the premises of Bangabasi Collegiate School, on the 11th April, 1965. Bangabasi College of Commerce was affiliated to the University of Calcutta in 1965 as an evening college.
