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.
