About College
Government General Degree College, Dantan-II was established on 29 th October 2015 by the Government of West Bengal to spread quality higher education to the students belonging to extremely rural and backward areas of Paschim Medinipur District of West Bengal. The College is situated on the Belda-Contai State highway and is surrounded by lush greenery and agricultural fields. Being close to a state highway connecting two moderately developed towns, Belda and Contai, the college can be accessed easily by various private and government bus services. This college was built on land previously owned by the Public Works Department (PWD) of the Government of West Bengal in Kashmuli Village of the Dantan-II block of Paschim Medinipur. According to some locals, the name Dantan originated from ‘Dandabhukti’ which was an antique provincial unit of the Gupta Empire. It is speculated that Chaitanya Mahaprabhu passed through here in the 16 th century to reach Jagannath Temple in Puri. Being situated within the small hamlet of Kashmuli, local people also called this institution ‘Kashmuli College’. This co-educational college, affiliated to Vidyasagar University, functions in the day shift starting from 10 AM to 5 PM from Monday to Saturday. Different undergraduate degree programs are offered to the students in Arts and Science streams. Apart from regular degree programs, the college has conducted different value-added courses, seminars, webinars, and workshops in recent times. The college contributes to the needs of the locals by not only providing quality education to the students from diverse social and economic backgrounds but also motivating them in character building, personality development and different co-curricular activities.
