Welcome to Saltora Netaji Centenary College

The people of Saltora and adjoining blocks acutely felt the need of a degree college at Saltora for a long time. As a step to that direction, a public meeting was convened in 1997 by the local people who took an oath to proceed further for the establishment of the degree college. People from every walk of life promised all kinds of possible help. An organizing 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 legendary 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 only 58 students. In the beginning, classes were held at Saltora Dr. B. C. Vidyapith. Later on, the college building was constructed and classes were shifted from Dr. B. C. Vidyapith to this college building in the year 2001. The college is currently affiliated to Bankura University, Bankura, w.e.f. 2017-18 session.
