       “Arise! Awake! And stop not till the Goal is reached“ the great saying of Swami Vivekananda hammered the benevolent Zaminder of this locality Biswambhar Dinda who wanted to perpetuate the memory of his only son ‘PRABHAT KUMAR’ who died prematurely.

Our Prabhat Kumar College established after the name of Late Prabhat Kumar was founded on 15th July 1926 with a princely donation from Sri Biswambhar Dinda and soon after the august visit of Bapuji to Contai in early of 1926.
The college started with only 39 pupils initially in the building complex of Contai High School “ the oldest H.S. School of Purba Medinipur District of an age of more than 125 years.

The college was initially established as an Arts College. After 10 years of establishment of the college, founder Principal Nepal Chandra Roy purchased a plot of land of about 5.7 acre with a moderate Building from the American Baptist Bengal-Mission at a very moderate price of Rs.3700/- and the college was shifted on 26th August 1937 to its present position.
After the death of Biswambhar Dinda, a trust formed after his name “ The Biswambhar Dinda Trust ( B.D. Trust) built up “Biswambhar Hall” “ the first construction made for the college. Subsequently, about 50 Bighas of land either by purchase or by acquisition was in the possession of the college authority.
The college is now developed into a full-fledged first-grade one with a roll strength of about 3900. Along with the march of time, our Institution is marching ahead by opening up many new disciplines to meet the challenges on the frontiers of Education in the 21st Century. We have already introduced General and Honours in 24 subjects. We have also regular Postgraduate study in Physics of Vidyasagar University. Moreover, we have Post Graduate Study Centre under Distance mode of education of Vidyasagar University and Rabindra Bharati University. In the college premises, there is a study centre of Netaji Subhas Open University where facilities of undergraduate Honours, Post Graduate, Library Science and Rural Study facilities for Panchayat persons are also available.
We have got our college successfully accredited on 12-13 March 2007 by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and got B+ grade. Recently we have adopted positive steps for computerization of all departments, library, office and accounts with Broadband internet facilities.
In our vast library, more than 49,000 books are available. Moreover, we have regular collection of national and international journals.
We have hostel facilities for our boys and girls. More than 90 girl students can be accommodated in Girls’ Hostel and about 50 boys students reside in the Boys’ Hostel. We have already received a sanction of Rs.93 lakhs for the construction of women hostel to meet long standing demand of students.
We have B.Ed. teaching facilities since 1966. But unfortunately from 2007-08 session, there was a temporary break for lack of necessary teaching permission from National Council of Teachers Education(NCTE). But I am happy to inform you that from the 2011-12 session we are again going to offer B.Ed. course. We are at the final stage of receiving the necessary clearance from NCTE.
We have attempted for construction of an Auditorium to meet the necessity specially for holding of Seminar, symposia of different departments, UGC seminars, National and state level seminars. Students of this college are paying year wise contribution for the same. We also expect to receive fund from generous persons.
We have already developed a campus after the name of eminent freedom fighter Late Dr. Rash Behari Pal within our college premises where facilities of research and seminar on the freedom movement in India with special reference to undivided Midnapore District be available. Dr.(Mrs.) Gouri Patra “ the most successful personality and the daughter of Late Dr. R. B. Pal lion-shared the project. In this museum we have also provision of collection of “PUTHI” “ the heritage writings of the eminence of past will also be available.
From the last ten years we have tied up with ICEI, Kolkata, for running a full fledged computer centre in our college premises.
The college is marching ahead as an institute of academic excellence in the district and all the stakeholders contribute positively to it. We have a cordial atmosphere in different fronts like Students, Non-teaching and Teaching and great Alumni Association. Our ex-students includes successful professionals in the different fields from academy to industry to politics to administration. But still, there is no room for self-righteousness and the way ahead of us is not a rosy one. Special attention is required for fulfilling the Man-making education which can pave the way for manifestation of perfection already there in the rising group “ the Youth of our Nation. Let us try to build up Man and their career in a valued way, so, that they can contribute for this beautiful world.
I wish all the best for all.
