From the Desk of Principal

Nayagram Pandit Raghunath Murmu Govt. College “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man” – Swami Vivekananda.
A large segment of the population of Jungle Mahal is economically backward and some of the people of the region are well below the poverty line. Hence, quality education is often denied to them. It is my sincere hope that the establishment of a Govt. College like this will go a long way in imparting higher education to these sections of the society.
At present, the College runs eleven (11) academic departments (offering UG Honours and General Courses in different disciplines of Humanities and Social Sciences) and a Unit of College NSS (National Service Scheme) with a total enrolment of about 1450 students. Yet, students learn more than just what’s taught in classes. They routinely work with faculty not only in the class rooms, but also interact with them beyond institutional boundaries and pursue their own passions. The departments vibrate with young talents. The departments along with taking care of the curricular requirements of the students inspire the students to engage in extra-curricular activities like, music, debate, quiz, seminar etc. Seeing the readers here at this College I wish this College a bright future and I sincerely hope that people access this website to learn more about the College.
