Pingla Thana Mahavidyalaya

History

Pingla Thana Mahavidyalaya is located in purely a rural setting at Maligram, in the south-east region of Paschim Medinipur and possesses an illustrious history of continuous development since its very inception. The college came into existence on 19th August, 1965 with the sincere effort and patronage of some distinguished educationists and well-wishers of the locality who committed to spread the light of higher education in this remote area. Even the land of the campus of the college was initially donated by the people of adjacent locality and was developed by them with their spontaneous physical labour. The College acquired the privilege of affiliation initially from the University of Calcutta for imparting three year degree courses in Arts and Commerce stream. Subsequently, the college was affiliated to Vidyasagar University, Medinipur in the year 1985. The extension of affiliation in new courses of study in B.A., B.Com. and B.Sc.(Hons. & Gen.) has led the almamater to win the distinction of being one of the few pioneering degree colleges not only in Paschim Medinipur, but also in the national scale after accruing the accreditation grade as “B++” College in March, 2007. The College is advancing with the effective endeavour to translate its mission and goal as a “Model Rural College.”
