The establishment of the college was taken up as a Project of the DNAA ( now Durgapur Municipal Corporation).




The college is Non-Government one affiliated to the University of Burdwan. The Government, however, has been pleased to bear the expenses for payment of salary only to the Whole-time Teaching and Non-Teaching staff as also of approved part time teachers and contractual whole time teacher of the college under the Private College rules of the Govt. of West Bengal. All other expenses, including payments to Part-time staff, casual staff and Guest Faculty are borne by the college.


mission.pngEducation is the basis of all empowerment – be it in the family, society of economy. Without economic empowerment the concept of social empowerment for women becomes fragile. Without a basic degree, the clarion call for women’s empowerment becomes meaningless. Hence one of the prime aims of Durgapur Women’s College is to impart sound graduate level instruction to girl students.
