The truth is that a vast area had been deprived of any institution of higher learning for a long time. Economic hardships and commuting problems only added to the woe and a number of students otherwise seeking higher education were stalled in their pursue of higher education and things were more difficult for the girl student. With establishment of Bhangar Mahavidylaya, a large vacuum was filled and a large number of students got the opportunity to walk the path leading towards higher education; the students ventured on foot, cycle, bus or trekker availing the chance. In due time, the road network became better with the high profile Kolkata Leather Complex developing some 16kms away from the college and development also happened in the form of Basanti Highway that connected Dhamakhali, Kanmari and Malancha in the East; Champahati, Sonarpur and Baruipur in the South West and the growth of Rajarhat New Town in the North added to the smooth communication. The college owes its existence to a local NGO (Bhangar Unaynee) where the leadership was provided by Abdur Rezzak Molla,the illustrious political personality of the area towards establishing this college. The initiative started ceremoniously in 1995 and the foundation stone was laid in 1996. The needed land was donated by the Irrigation Department, Government of West Bengal through Bhangar 1 Panchayet Samity. While the South 24 Paraganas Zilla Parishad and the local M.P. Sri Ajoy Chakraborty extended financial assistance to the tune of 21 lakhs, the overwhelming masses of the locality came forward in large numbers with whatever assets they might have had be it money or materials or even free labour in fulfilling the long cherished dream of having a Degree College of their own.
