As a step to that direction, a public meeting was convented in 1997 by a group of response of the people encouraged the organisers who where hopeful enough to proceed further for the establishment of a degree college. People from every walk of life promised all kinds of possible help. An organising committee was constituted. It was decided that the proposed degree college be named as “SALTORA NETAJI CENTENARY COLLEGE” to show reverence and respect to our great national hero, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his auspicious birth Centenary, Land, money and material came in the form of donation. The University of Burdwan granted affiliation and recognition to this co-educational institution from the session 2000-2001. The College started with 58 students. At the very outset of the College classes were held at Saltora Dr. B.C. Vidyapith. Thereafter college building was constructed and classes were shifted from Dr. B.C. Vidyapith to the college building in the month of May-2001.
