Mahavidyalaya History

The Mahavidyalaya began its journey as a Sanskrit Vidyalaya to render the teaching of Sanskrit along with modern subject in one of the remote parts in the state of West Bengal way back in 1986 in a very poor condition by a few enthusiastic Sanskrit lovers and patrons. Late Sri Jagadish Chandra Sahoo donated the land and buildiing for the Mahavidyalaya. He was supported by his brother late Sri Jyotirmoy Sahoo. The Mahavidyalaya is named after their late father Bikram Kishore Sahoo. In April 1998 the Mahavidyalaya was recognized as Adarsh Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya by Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan. This became fruitful mainly due to immense pursuance and support of Late Dr. Nitish Sengupta I.A.S. (Retd), Ex M.P. (L.S.) and Founder & Former Chairman of the Mahavidyalaya and Late Mrs. Sunanda Sengupta I.A.S. (Retd). This endeavor was well supported by the Education Secretary, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of india and also by the dignitaries in the higher ranks of the Sansthan. On the 17th of August 1998 the foundation stone of the Mahavidyalaya was laid. Since then overcoming hardships and with some short—comings on its part it has come a long way and at present is in a state where the Mahavidyalaya itseif has become an important centre of Sanskrit learning in the Purba Mednipur District of West Bengal which is near to 0disha, the neighboring state.
