Darjeeling Government College

Darjeeling Government College as it stands today since 5th August, 1948, has traversed a long way in serving the community. Darjeeling is very fortunate to have a government college of this stature and potentiality in this district town. The college is situated at the foothills of the eastern sub-himalayan region at an altitude of 2134 meters. It stands on the Leblong Cart Road near the Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute. At the place where the college stands today in its full stature, previously stood St. Michael's School. A new Science and Geography Block along with a new chamber of the Principal have been added to the existing structure without disturbing its original structural identity. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Darjeeling Government College and the Bose Institute of Kolkata for executing mutual co-operation in scientific research, particularly in such areas, which might have relevance in local context. On of the most important achievements of the college is the building up of a Central Library with a rich collection of books including rare volumes of Tibetan, Nepali and Sanskrit works. The students are allowed to borrow books for studying at home and are encouraged to use the reading room during the college hours. Honours and Post-Graduate students enjoy an additional facility of using the extremely rich seminar libraries of their respective departments. The library keeps on adding to its existing resources by utilizing the annual grants provided by the Government and the UGC. The library is also planning to provide internet facilities to the interested students, it is being computerised at present.
