From the Principal's Desk

Pathar Pratima Mahavidyalaya occupies a place of pride in the annual of higher education in West Bengal. The result of different discipline of B.A. / B.Sc. in Hons. & General level are very very satisfactqr in the last year. The results of M.A. Part-l & Part-ll is the last year is also very good. Students get first class in many discipline at Post graduate level. On the behalf of college authority I am determine to maintain strict discipline and education friendly environment within the college campus. Emphasis is also laid on regular attendance of classes, Midterm and Test Examination by students following Calcutta University Stipulations. Being the Teacher-in-charge I also want to give facilities to students in academic, cultural, sports and other welfare activities associated with students in the comming session. Computer facilities for geography students are available. Xerox facilities at a concessional rate are also available. I wish this premier institution will attain further stage of advance learning in the coming days.
