History of the College >> A Few Words

Seth Soorajmull Jatan Girls' College owes its existence to the great industrialist of Bengal, late Shri Mohan1al Jalan, the founder president of the College. He was a noted industrialist, benevolent social worker and an enthusiastic promoter of Women's Education in Kolkata and in other parts of India. He made his revered father's dream a reality and the College owes its existence to his benevolent vision. Seth Soorajmull Jalan Girls' College had a very modest beginning with a hand full of students at Seth Soorajmull Jalan School at 186, Chittaranjan Avenue, Kolkata -700 007 on 2nd August, 1954. Today, under the able guidance of the present President of the College, Shri Tularam Jalan and the Vice-President Shrimati Alka Devi Jalan, the College has extended education to girls of all communities. The College has earned a notable cosmopolitan character today and has been totally successful in being one of the notable girls' colleges in North Kolkata where the medium of instruction is English.

In our pursuit of excellence, the College has made another landmark achievement in its fiftieth year, namely, being assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). NAAC is an autonomous body established by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country. It is an outcome of the recommendations of the National Policy on Education (1986) that laid special emphasis on upholding the quality of higher education in India. We are indeed proud to declare that this esteemed body has evaluated the all round development of the College and has awarded the College B+ grade.

The College has seriously taken note of the various recommendations for the further development of the College. As an organised effort for self-improvement, the College has established the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (SSR), which is a body that helps in defining and guiding sustenance activity.
