The Department of Bengali is the oldest and largest department of the college with nearly 300 students in Honours and Post Graduate courses. The department also bears the heavy load of Bengali General, Compulsory Bengali (AECC) and LCC (Language for General) under CBCS. The department was established in 1937 i.e. from the day one of the college. Bengali Honours and General Courses got affiliation from University of Calcutta in 1940. Journey of the department since 1937 is successful and glorious enough both in academic and co-curricular activities.

In 2013 the department was upgraded as a Post Graduate Department. As per recommendation of NAAC peer team visited in 2007, Principal Dr. Mahua Das proposed to open Regular PG course in Bengali and as a result, the department got affiliation from University of Calcutta. Opening ceremony of PG course was occurred on 23rd August, 2013 in presence of so many dignitaries and academicians. The journey was started with 60 students and the introductory lecture was delivered by Professor Pabitra Sarkar.

Introducing the PG course Department of Bengali became the pioneer in giving opportunity to a good number of students from this college to have the facilities of higher education from their own institution along with the students of other colleges.

Once the department was glorified with the presence of dedicated teachers like Dr. Kshudiram Das, Smt.Ashalata Sinha, Smt. Urmila Das, Sri Saurindra kumar Dey and Smt. Basanti Mukhopadhyay. Without whose contributions, dedications and blessings the department could not reach the goal and achieve the present status were Dr. Sipra Lahiri, Dr. Jayashree Bhattacharya and Smt.Kumkum Nundy. The torch was handed over by them to the next generation to light it forever and to carry on the heritage of the department.
