About College

It was a heart-felt desire of the people of Jhalda locality to have an academic institution for higher studies, a college for the local students to study degree course at under-graduate level. The initiative of common people including some eminent citizens gathered momentum during mid-1970s. With the banning of Ananda Marga College by Government of India in 1975, the necessity was felt even more strongly. After several meetings held in this direction in Jhalda and elsewhere, it was decided that a college namely “JHALDA COLLEGE” will be established “as a successor of Ananda Marga College” (as in the letter granting affiliation from the Registrar, Burdwan University). Later it was renamed as “ACHHRURAM MEMORIAL COLLEGE” in the memory of Late Lala Achhruram Behl (1894-1964), an eminent industrialist and father of Late Sohanlal Behl, an eminent industrialist himself and the donor of the college.
