Brief History Of The College


The Department of Higher Education, Government of West Bengal approved the establishment of General Degree College named ‘Shishuram Das College’ at Bhusna, P.O. - Kamapole, P.S. - Diamond Harbour, Dist. - South 24 Parganas with effect from 2010 – 2011 academic session. Accordingly, in 2010, as a ‘Destination of Higher Education’ Shishuram Das College started its journey in the first year at Sarisha High School building. Thus the aspiration for higher education of the local people, particularly the students belonging to the poor and middle-class families who cannot afford to go far off places for meeting the demand of higher education, was fulfilled. The establishment of the College was possible for the educationist and philanthropist Late Pranapati Das who donated Rs. 11 Lakhs and 0.54 acre of land for the college in the name of his father Late Shishuram Das. Sri Rishi Kumar Halder (Ex-MLA and former President of the college) supported wholeheartedly towards the foundation of the College. Diamond Harbour Sarisha Janakalyan Sanstha played an important role in the foundation of the college. The college owes its huge premises (an area of 5.08 acres) to the society. The foundation stone of the present college building was laid on 16th August 2010 by Dr. Suranjan Das, the then Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calcutta and Dr. Subimal Sen, the then Chairman of West Bengal State Council of Higher Education in the presence of Sri Rishi Kumar Halder, Dr. Haraprasad Samaddar and others. Since then, the college has expanded structurally and academically, thus earning the reputation of having an excellent academic environment. At present the college imparts higher education to around 2000 students of Arts stream. This number is expected to increase in the future. Apart from general classrooms, smart classroom and library the college also has canteen and common rooms for students and a playground for sports and other outdoor activities.

The college has a well-constructed building and campus that covers an area of about 5 acres of land.


The College aims at the upliftment of the people of the locality, particularly the poor and middle classes, through spreading higher education which will lead to enlightenment and employment. Since its establishment the college has aimed at propagating quality education among the students. Being located in the rural area of South 24 Parganas the college has evolved as a seat of academic excellence in the region and has significantly contributed in the fields of sports, physical education, socio-cultural activities and public awareness. Since its inception the college is committed to impart higher education to the aspiring youth.

In spite of so many difficulties and barriers the students have the urge to obtain higher education which makes us realize the need for an educational institution like Shishuram Das College in the region that fulfils the dream of these people. And, in contrary to the situation, the academic results of our college are relatively good and are improving every year. The credit goes to our dedicated and sincere faculty members for whom the academic interests of the students are of utmost importance. A cordial and healthy teacher-student relationship and a learners-friendly atmosphere constitute the motivating spirit for all the members of this institution. While no compromises are made in so far as teaching is concerned the teachers are always ready to support and encourage the students in other extracurricular activities as well.


The college is situated in an area that is quite underdeveloped and financially backward and most of the students belong to very poor families that find it very difficult to afford higher education. The situation is so grave that many of these students are forced to remain involved in various jobs to support their families financially.
