NSS is a social service scheme sponsored by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of Youth Affairs and Sports, Govt. Of India. The NSS unit of our college started its onward journey in 1990. At present, this Scheme is being implemented through the University of Kalyani. In 2001, the NSS unit II was opened to involve girl-students. The goal of NSS is community service through education and vice-versa. It gives the students opportunities to work with the people and among the people. It, thus, develops social awareness and knowledge of reality among them. It motivates both the students and the people of the society in mitigating some acute social problems and in promoting welfare of the society. Various camps and training programmes on Civil Defence, First Aid and Seminars on Environment Awareness, Health Awareness and AIDS etc. are held throughout the year. A National Level Camp was also organized in this college in 1999, which involved participation of students from all over India. Motto of NSS is 'Not Me But You'.

The history of college NCC organization is very old in its tradition. The college raised NCC unit (i.e. 5/9 Coy.) in the year 1963 and since then it has been functioning successfully. Students are allowed to get membership of the NCC unit in the beginning of the session. Girl-students of the college are also eligible to get membership of NCC through admission to open unit for the girls operating in our neighbouring institution, Sripat Singh College. The college is, however, trying to open a similar unit for the girl-students interested in joining NCC. Motto of NCC is "Unity and Discipline". Cadets attending regular NCC parades are eligible to receive training certificates issued by the college NCC unit. The NCC cadets may also appear at the 'B' and 'C' certificate examinations conducted by theMinistry of Defence, Government of India. In addition to the regular training, NCC students have enough scope for participating in various community development and other extension activities. In fact, joining the NCC gives extra charm and status among the students desirous of contributing something to the cause of our nation. Recently, both Govt. of India and Govt. of West Bengal have given priority and advantage to NCC 'B' and 'C' Certificate holders in various defence related recruitment examinations. The cadets of the college are trying to encash this benefit as maximum as possible. On an average about 10 cadets are getting job every year with the help of NCC 'B' or 'C' certificate. This is no doubt an encouraging trend indeed. Enrolment in NCC is done on the basis of Physical fitness test. At present the College Unit Commander is Lieut. Dr. A. M. Mishra and Office Assistant is'S.K. Karmakar (NCC 'C' certificate holder).

The need and essence of commerce education for all-round growth and development of a society does not require too much emphasis and explanation. Keeping this fact in view and the initiative taken by some noted personalities and educationists led by the Founder Principal Late J.R Sengupta, "Jiaganj College of Commerce" was established on August 01, 1962. The college started its functioning in the evening shift in the premises of the neighbouring Sripat Singh College and imparted education for B.Com (Pass) course.
In 1973, the college was shifted to the present premises. It was made possible by the generous contribution extended by a benevolent local landlord Late Sripat Singh Dugar and thus the college got a new independent set-up. The affiliating University, University of Calcutta conferred affiliation up to Honours course in B.Com (Accountancy). The college then started its activities as a Day College and it was renamed as "Rani Dhanya Kumari College of Commerce" in the name of Late Rani Dhanya Kumari, the wife of Late Sripat Singh Dugar.
At present, a small but decent campus is located in a pollution-free tranquil environment far from the madding crowd with the lush green outfield covering a vast area of its own.
To cater to the growing need of the neighbouring areas the college authority opened B.A. (Pass) course in Degree level with some non-traditionaJ subjects alofig with the traditional subjects from 1995-96 academic session.
After opening Arts stream the University of Calcutta urged to change the name of the college and, accordingly, the college has been re-named as "Rani Dhanya Kumari College".
As per notification of the Govt. of West Bengal, dt. 26.04.99 the college has been affiliated to the University of Kalyani from the academic session 1999-2000.
Honours courses in Bengali, English and Sociology along with a General course in Physical Education were introduced from 2002-2003 academic session.
In order to cope up with the ever-growing demand of large number of students of neighbouring areas the college authority in the recent past, introduced Honours courses in Political Science, History and Geography.
The college has a modern office with computer facility, automatic photocopy machine and fax machine. For better and effective management of the college office, it has been divided into two sections-Accounts & Cash Section, and General Section.
The salient feature of this institution lies in its healthy tradition of maintaining a cordial relationship between the teacher and the taught and so also with the office staff. The results of the college is highly satisfactory.
Since its inception the college has been blooming and flourishing in terms of ever-growing enrolment strength and imparting quality education.
