The college Jatindra Rajendra Mahavidyalaya was started with about 36 students, surprisingly girl-students comprising one-third of the class strength in 1986. The Board of members was led by Jayanta Biswas and Sudhir Mondal, with the inclusion of educationists and liberal-minded individuals of the local community. Sanjoy Hajra was appointed Teacher-in-Charge and many teachers of neighbouring schools taught classes in the college without any remuneration. With halting steps, the college grew in strength and in 1989, the first principal of the college N.M. Khalilullah joined his post and along with a skeletal staff of four full-timers, few part-timers and non-teaching staff carried the baton of college education forward in Amtala.
