University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan History

University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan is a public university located in Bardhaman, West Bengal, India. It was established by the West Bengal Government as a teaching and affiliating university on 15 June, 1960 with six graduate departments and thirty undergraduate colleges spread over five districts that come under the jurisdiction of the University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan.

University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan offers 30 graduate programs. There are 122 affiliated colleges ( including degree colleges, B.Ed. colleges and private professional institutes ). University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan has been awarded 4 star status by the NAAC.

Burdwan is an anglicized version of the Sanskrit Vardhamana and the corresponding Bardhaman in Bengali. The origin of this name dates back to sixth century BC and is ascribed to the twenty – fourth Jain Tirthankar, or Vardhamanswami, who spent some time in Astikagrama, according to the the Jain Kalpasutra. This place has been renamed as Vardhamana in his honour.

A second view holds the literal meaning of the name, a prosperous and growing centre, to argue that this place represented a frontier colony of the progress of organisation through the upper Ganga valley. However, the Aryans failed to proceed further east. So, the name was retained. Archeological evidences suggest that this region, forming a major part of Radh Bengal, could be traced even back to 4000 – 2000 BC.

Burdwan University started on 15th June, 1960, with Sukumar Sen, an ICS, as its first Vice – chancellor. It was after the abolition of the Zamindari system in the fifties that Uday Chand Mahtab, the last representative of the Burdwan Raj, showed his magnanimity in leaving almost his entire property of Burdwan at the disposal of the state government.

This, coupled with the initiative of the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, facilitated the establishment at University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwany. Presently, the administrative works are mostly done at Rajbati ( the palace of Barddhamana Maharaja ) campus; on the other hand, academic activities center around the Golapbag campus mainly.

At the initial phase, only the humanities section began to function. After a year, mainstreams of science faculties were included. The starting motto, that this university should have a science-technology bias, in view of the growing needs of industrialization just around, later found justification when Medical College and Regional Engineering College, Durgapur took shape.

There are now about 22 Post – graduate departments in various disciplines. With regard to further expansions, mention may be made of the engineering college, named as University Institute of Technology, which has recently been established under the direct control of this University of Burdwan Rajbati Burdwan with the approval from All India Council for Technical Education ( AICTE ).
