About Us

Rani Birla Girls' College was established in July 1961 as an undergraduate arts college affiliated to the University of Calcutta by the Hindusthan Charity Trust in the memory of Rani Jogeshwari Devi Birla to serve as a women’s educational institution and to impart a comprehensive learning programme to its students within an enlightened, liberal and progressive milieu. Undergoing a remarkable transformation, this college departed from its initial apparatus of governance (by a private Trust) to function as an aided institution under the Government of West Bengal.

The institution holds the distinction of being the bearer of a teaching and learning legacy of more than six decades and has been relentless in its pursuit of excellence. This college has maintained good academic performance with consistency. Co-curricular training and value-orientation have been equally prioritized within the institutional agenda. The college is very conveniently located on Shakespeare Sarani and is easily accessible from both the A.J.C. Bose Road and Jawaharlal Nehru Road intersections of Shakespeare Sarani. It is adjacent to Bharatiya Bhasha Parishad and Macpherson Square.

Choosing the right direction as I sit down to reminisce, and maybe pen down a few moments of my college life, a tsunami of images and memories rush by, a smile lights by the face as I recall days long gone but seemingly never forgotten.
