It had been a long cherished dream of the people of Santragachi to have a degree college in their locality. The dream gradually turned into a demand. At this turn, certain events also coincided. Late Sudhir Kumar Ghosh decided to donate his land and the building situated at Dharmatala in Ramrajatala. After that with the initiative of the then local MLA Sri Satyen Ghosh and some important persons of the area, a trustee was formed before setting up the college. It was 26th November, 1984. On 10th March, 1985 in a public meeting presided over by Late Raghudas Baul and attended by Late Sudhir Kumar Ghosh, the college was named after the leading educationist, respected public leader and ex-minister of Industry and Commerce (Govt. of W. B.), Late Professor Dr. Kanailal Bhattacharyya.
Enlisting the College as ‘Govt.-aided College’ under(Sec) 2(f) and 12(b) of UGC vide order no.8-48/87 dated 22nd October,1994.
At present the College is preparing for the impending 4th cycle of NAAC Re-Accreditation.
