The Department of Jute and Fibre Technology (DJFT), a Technology Department of the University of Calcutta formerly known as Institute of Jute Technology (IJT), is situated at 35, Ballygunge Circular Road, Kolkata – 700 019 in South Calcutta Campus of the University of Calcutta (commonly known as Ballygunge Science College Campus ). Institute of Jute Technology was founded on 10th March, 1951, jointly by the University of Calcutta and Indian Jute Mill’s Association (IJMA) on a piece of land of the University of Calcutta donated by Tarak Nath Palit Trust. The main objective of this Institute was to cater education and training to fulfill the HRD needs of jute and allied fibre sector for development of qualified technical manpower and training of mill-personnel for the Indian Jute Mills as recommended by the “Appointment Board” of the University of Calcutta, way back in 1940. The financial expenditure was initially maintained by the IJMA and their member mills of IJT up to 1982. Jute Manufactures Development Council (JMDC), Ministry of Textiles , Govt of India came forward to help this Institute financially initially on adhoc basis since 1982 and on five year MOU basis from 1991-92. National Jute Board (NJB), Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, [earlier known as Jute Manufactures Development Council (JMDC)], has provided continued financial support to this Institute through Memorandum of Understanding with the approval of the Ministry of Textiles. Recently University of Calcutta has come forward to take financial responsibility for running this Institute with the consent of State Govt. of West Bengal, Higher Education Department. Accordingly on and from 1st July, 2011, this Institute has been converted into a Technology Department of the University of Calcutta with the concurrence from the Govt. of West Bengal and named as the “Department of Jute and Fibre Technology (DJFT), Institute of Jute Technology, University of Calcutta.”
