RAMAKRISHNA MISSION ASHRAMA
NARENDRAPUR, KOLKATA - 700103
SHORT REPORT
FOR THE PERIOD FROM APRIL 2019 TO MARCH 2020
Introduction
This Ashrama had a humble beginning as an ordinary students’ home in 1943 at Pathuriaghata in North Kolkata. But then, it harboured a dream of doing something extraordinary ahead for the people, especially for the less fortunate, considering it crucial immediately before and after the Independence. So, ever since its inception, it was in search of avenues for larger altruistic works, and thereby of larger space as well. It was, therefore, able to discover a piece of land ultimately, and had eventually shifted in 1956 to the place where it is now situated at NARENDRAPUR. Approximately 15 kilometers from the heart of Kolkata City, Narendrapur is a popular and well connected bustling place in the south these days. As a result of its conspicuous development into a multi-institutional organization of excellence, amidst a serene atmosphere of lush vegetation, the Ashrama soon became Narendrapur’s quintessence spontaneously. Here is its latest institution-wise repot in brief.
College (Autonomous with P. G. courses)
This is a boys’ residential college started in 1960. The University of Calcutta had later granted it Autonomy to function and carry on with post graduate courses, alongside the already existing undergraduate courses. By virtue of this special status, it is able to conduct examinations and publish results independently. Students can, therefore, conveniently complete their higher education in the available subjects once they get admittance in it after finishing their school education.
It presently offers Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, English, Economics, History, Sanskrit and Bengali for Honours, while for Post Graduation Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science and English. This college is proud to have been recognised by DST (Department of Science and Technology), Govt. of India as a SIRO (Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), a distinction enjoyed by very few colleges in India.
The college has received permission from the University of Calcutta to open Vivekananda Centre for Research conducting for M.Phil. /Ph.D. & research programmes. The college can now conduct all the research programmes on its own. Rules and regulations in this regard have been framed and duly approved by our parent University.

During the period under review, there were in all 640 students in the college. Among them, 196 students enjoyed the privilege of free studentship, namely 7 full and 189 partial.
Students took advantage of its one N.C.C. unit and two N.S.S. units and duly participated in their activities. Its library contains 90,304 books, Journals and Magazines 39, Newspapers 7 and users borrowed (students & staff) 8282 books from it during the year, and 1263 of them, on an average, attended its Reading Room daily. In its four Research wings (Chemistry and Physics) as many as 14 scholars remained attached and worked all through the year. Donations made to the purposes of its R&D works are exempt from income tax u/s 35(1) (ii) of the I.T. Act, 1961.
The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD and launched by Honourable Minister of Human Resourse Development on 29th September 2015. As per the result declared by MHRD on 08.04.2019, our college has secured 15th rank in India.
School (from V to XII) Started in 1958 and affiliated to the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education as well as to the West Bengal Council of Higher Education, the school is a residential higher secondary school for boys from class V. Its secondary section has both Bengali and English as media of instruction, whereas in higher secondary section it is English alone.
