About College

Siddhinath Mahavidyalaya is a government-aided co-educational undergraduate college affiliated to Vidyasagar University, located in a scenic landscape under the rural ambiance of Panskura-1 Block in the Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal. The college was initially run by Shyamsundarpur Patna Education & Charitable Trust and the college was established in 2013.

Siddhinath Mahavidyalaya, S.S.Patna, Panskura, Purba Mdinipur situated in a remote rural area conterminous with the juncture of the three police stations namely Panskura, Debra and Daspur in the peculiar territorial contiguity of two districts namely Purba Medinipur and Paschim Medinipur is now the rays of hope to eradicate the darkness of knowledge among those students who have hidden their desire for higher education but fail to fulfil because of their some burning issues.

The glorious history of setting up this college glitters like a diamond that reflects the dedication, sacrifice and unconditional love for the soil by some eminent persons of fervent zeal. Siddhinath Mahavidyalaya the dream child of an educationist and headmaster of a local high school, Sri Nirmal Chandra Maity started its journey on 15th March 2013 Sri Maity the Founder-President of the college wanted to start an educational institution for higher studies especially for the girls who had to discontinue their education after completion of their schooling as there was no college in this minority -dominated tribal-based and economically backward remote and rural areas. He started the college with a handful of boys and girls, practically begging from door to door for the female students. Thus the dream came true when a college named Siddhinath Mahavidyalaya and got affiliated to Vidyasagar University by the efficient, sincere and persistent efforts of this great soul and spontaneous bounty of land donor Rabi Nath Mahanta ji who donated land for setting up this college. Above all the role of S. S. Patna Educational and Charitable Trust in the establishment of this glorious institution can never be measured or calculated. Truly this college could not have come into existence without pioneering efforts, financial assistance providing lands and direct supervision of evolving it beautifully.
