Raja Birendra Chandra College, formerly known as Kandi Raj College of Commerce was established on 16 th August 1965 in the premises of Kandi Raj College in the evening shift under the affiliation of Calcutta University to cater commerce education to the students of Kandi subdivision and its adjoining area. Late Kumar Jagadish Chandra Sinha (adopted son of Raja Birendra Chandra Sinha), the then President of the Governing Body of Kandi Raj College of Commerce and the President of Raja Birendra Chandra College Trust Fund donated Rs. 26000.00 (twenty six thousand only) on behalf of the said Trust Fund at the time of establishment of the college. The college was renamed as Raja Birendra Chandra College of Commerce on and from 2 nd March 1973. At that time Kumar Jagadish Chandra Sinha again donated Rs. 46000.00 (Rs. 24000.00+Rs.22000.00) on behalf of Raja Birendra Chandra College Trust Fund and a piece of land of 26 katha (0.43 acre) along with a small one storied building at the Rajbati premises for the proposed Raja Birendra Chandra College of Commerce where foundation stone was laid on 24 th March 1973 by Prof. S.N. Sen then Vice Chancellor of Calcutta university. By this way the dream of establishing a commerce college came to reality. From July 1977 the college has been appeared in the morning shift. The college was shifted from the premises of Kandi Raj College to its present site in April 1998. But sharp decline in the number of commerce students at that time raised the question regarding the sustainability of the college. Moreover, there was long term demand from the students, guardians and intellectuals of the locality for the introduction of Arts stream at the degree level in the college. Keeping those views in mind and to make the college viable, the then college authority introduced general Arts stream at the degree level from 1998 under the affiliation of Kalyani University. Honours courses (in Bengali, English, Sanskrit, History and Geography) were introduced later on. The college was again renamed as Raja Birendra Chandra College in 2002. The morning shift of the college has been changed to day shift from July 2006. Now it is a full fledged co-educational general degree college for Arts and Commerce stream. The introduction of Arts stream is a new era in the history of the development of the college. At present the number of students on roll is nearly 2000.
