About College
Achhruram Memorial College, Jhalda, located just at the entrance of Jhalda town on the Purulia-Ranchi road, is an important landmark. The college covers a moderate area of 26 bighas of land including a pond, a garden, some agricultural lands and the college buildings. The decently painted college building in the midst of the greeneries of rows of tamarisk trees at the background of deep blue sky and far-off hills makes the college stunningly beautiful, visually.

Academically, the college provides Honours courses in six Arts (History, Bengali, English, Economics, Geography and Philosophy) and five Science (Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Zoology and Botany) subjects and an array of general degree course subjects. Total number of students at the undergraduate level, at both General and Honours levels, both Arts and Science streams, is more than 1500.
College History
It was a heart-felt desire of the people of Jhalda locality to have an academic institution for higher studies, a college for the local students to study degree course at under-graduate level. The initiative of common people including some eminent citizens gathered momentum during mid-1970s. With the banning of Ananda Marga College by Government of India in 1975, the necessity was felt even more strongly. After several meetings held in this direction in Jhalda and elsewhere, it was decided that a college namely “JHALDA COLLEGE” will be established “as a successor of Ananda Marga College” (as in the letter granting affiliation from the Registrar, Burdwan University). Later it was renamed as “ACHHRURAM MEMORIAL COLLEGE” in the memory of Late Lala Achhruram Behl (1894-1964), an eminent industrialist and father of Late Sohanlal Behl, an eminent industrialist himself and the donor of the college.

The college was formally started on 1st September 1975 in a building at the heart of Jhalda town. The college was then planned to be housed in a new college building and the foundation stone of this proposed building was laid on a gracious function on 9th February, 1979. The foundation stone was laid by Late Manoharlal Behl and function was presided over by Dr. Ramaranjan Mukherjee, the then Vice-Chancellor of the University of Burdwan. On 28th April 1981 the new college building was inaugurated by His Excellency, the Governor of West Bengal and the Chancellor of the University of Burdwan, Sri Trivuban Narayan Singh. Dr. Ramaranjan Mukherjee, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Burdwan presided over this inaugural function.

After this the college never looked back. With the kind donations from Late Sohanlal Bahl, particularly in its formative stages, with able guidance of successive Vice-Chancellors and other officials of the University of Burdwan, with sincere perseverance by the teaching and non-teaching staff members of the college, with enthusiastic support and co-operation from the people of Jhalda and above all, with ever growing hunger for knowledge of the generations of students, Achhruram Memorial College has overcome all the hindrances to become what it is today, a youthful but matured premier academic institution of thirty-seven years.

A new phase has started in the history of the college since January 6 2011, as the College, along with all the other colleges of the district, is now affiliated to the newly formed Sidho-Kanho-Birsha University. While the students to be admitted in the college from session 2011-2012 will be registered under the new University, the existing students registered under the University of Burdwan will remain under the University of Burdwan.
