A Brief History of the College
It was in November 1981 that Mahatma Gandhi College was established at Lalpur, Purulia. From the date of foundation it is absolutely clear that the college is reasonable a new one. But what began as a tiny seed grew onto a reasonably moderate tree sheltering now more than 150 students in its various department. It was in recognitions of a sustained endeavour of a number of education loving people which ultimately transformed tottering child into a resolute youth, striding forward to a new horizon of attainments, that on November 25th 2006, teachers, students, local enthusiasts, the district administration assembled to observe with considerable razz-ma-tazz the Silver Jubilee celebration of that cherished youth namely Mahatma Gandhi College.
It is a non-govt. under graduate college and affiliated to Sidho Kanho Birsha University, Purulia with effect from 06.01.2011, vide G.O. No. 06-Edn(U) dtd. 05.01.2011 It got its registration under 2(f) & 12B from the UGC in the year 1990.
