The winter of 1971 saw the fulfillment of a noble dream sodearly cherished by some eminent persons of Behala, Maheshtala and Budge Budge for a long time ‚ÄĒ in the establishment of Maheshtala College on 9th November1971. Its aim was to impart higher education to the students of Maheshtala and Budge Budge area, who had no other alternatives, but to travel a long way for their higher education or to discontinue it midway. The College had a very humble start with hardly any fund, no building of its own and no financial assistance from the State Government either for institution or for teachers. Initially, the college got affiliation from the University of Calcutta for 3 - year degree and Pre-University course in Arts only. Classes were held in Sarengabad High School.

The College had to face various problems, mainly financial, to fulfill the terms and conditions of affiliation. By the time the present site of the college was made available with active initiation of iocal people ‚ÄĒ irrespective of caste and religion ‚ÄĒ acute financial crisis stood in the way of making any headway in erecting the building.

Local people, ranging from brickfield owners to factory workers made contributions according to their ability. Late Sudhir Chandra Bhandari, the then MLA took leading part In establishment of the college. The then teachers and non-teaching staff donated whatever financial assistance they received for the first time from the government.
