Prabhu Jagatbandhu College, generally popular as Andul College, is situated on the bank of once famous river, The Saraswati. Nearly five decades ago on 15th August 1964 this college was founded only as result of a long-cherished aspiration of thousands of education conscious people of very old and culturally rich localities of Jhorehat, Andul and Mouri. This college has been named after Sri Sri Prabhu Jagatbandhu, a saint in the true sense of the term. Even today there are a great number of his devotees. One of the devotees, Dr. Tinkari Ghosh,MBBS gifted some of his land and a building to start the college. This self-effacing man ensured that no hint of his generosity should be publicized. An organizing committee comprising Principal Bijoy Krishna Bhattacharyya, Prof. Bipin Krishna Ghosh, Sri Bijoyananda Chatterjee, Dr. Renu Bhusan Chatterjee and Sri Harigopal Bhattacharyya (Secretary) was set up to run the College.
The dream of the college could not have culminated into reality but for the voluntary donation by the education loving people of the locality, raised by the untiring, selfless benevolent group under the name of ‚ÄėKarmi Sangha‚Äô. Later on the Science Building was constructed with the money and materials donated by generous Surath Mohan Paul. Dr. T. K. Ghosh made a gift to the college some of his landed property and Surath Mohan also executed a trust deed between N. C. Paul (Bricks) Pvt. Ltd. and the college making in a perennial source of income-of-the-college. Decades later, on the western side of the campus, the building was constructed under the scheme of MPLAD fund of Hon'ble M.P. Mr. Swadesh Ranjan Chakraborty . Mr. Chakraborty further allotted Rs. Ten lakhs from the same fund for setting up computer facilities in the college.
