The Partition of India was the catalyst – in itself a cataclysm in the life of this one great nation that witnessed the mass exodus of an uprooted sea of humanity from the erstwhile East Pakistan, now Bangladesh, seeking a bare minimum of food and shelter in the districts of West Bengal, searching for an identity in an alien milieu, struggling to find a foothold in an unaccustomed terrain. Time has always been profile_new_pic2the best healer, and these displaced families overcame the teething trouble to settle down to a quieter life in the suburbs of the city of Kolkata.

Netaji Nagar was developed in the city-fringe to accommodate thousands of transplanted men and women in the year 1950 and it gradually developed in the early Fifties of the last century. These families displayed admirable resilience and fortitude in mingling with the life and culture in their new-found home away from home.Once the basic needs for survival were procured, they began to cherish the dream of providing their succeeding generations with proper foothold in life through institutional education and the creation of a cultural milieu. A heroic struggle of the local people caused the establishment of ‘Netaji Nagar Vidyamandir’, the adjacent Boy’s School, a secondary school, that was constructed overnight on 2nd January, 1951.It marked the beginning of the struggle for profile_new_pic4establishing educational institutions in the area. It was through some more years of protracted struggle that some primary and secondary schools could be set up in the locality as an initial step towards establishing a cultivated ambience. When the children grew older and were moving beyond the school level, the urge to establish institutions for higher education became imperative.This express urge in the enlightened visionaries among the displaced population ultimately facilitated the foundation profile_new_pic5of an Under-Graduate College at Netaji Nagar.The establishment of Netaji Nagar College on 25th September, 1967, is the translation of a long-cherished dream into reality by the sheer determination of the ‘refugee’ population of this fast-developing colony. Profuse sweats were spilled, sundry formalities were observed, inspiration and active co-operation was received from the then Vice-Chancellor of Calcutta University, Late Bidhubhushan Malik. Initially, undergraduate classes started in the evening shift in the adjacent building of Netaji Nagar Vidyamandir with a few teaching and non-teaching staff and it conducted only Commerce classes. The College needed to possess its own building to nurture and nourish its unique identity.profile_new_pic7 It was again left to the generosity of the mostly impoverished refugee families of the expanding colony to contribute their meagre mite to raise a fund for the purpose.The five-storied main building was inaugurated in 1970; the annexed four-storey building was subsequently built to accommodate provisions for a rapid infra-structural expansion.
