Rajshahi Government City College is a government-owned higher secondary educational institution located in Rajshahi. It offers higher secondary, undergraduate and graduate programs, affiliated with National University, Bangladesh. It was established in 1958 and nationalized in 1982.[1]


Entrance of the institution

After the partition of India, the people of the Rajshahi region suffered from higher education. Because, then, only two institutions, Rajshahi College and a non-government college called Adina Fazlul Haque College were for giving higher education to the people. So, establishing a college was an immediate desire of the people of that region. Thus, with help of local people and the administration of Rajshahi, this college was established in July 1958.

In its initial years, there was no land or building for the college. So, the academic activities are taken in Loknath high school with only 140 students. But, in 1969, the number of students of the institution was 3500. In 1958, 0.50 acres of land were bought for 18000 BDT for the college in Rajshahi city. The first principal of this college was Mohammad Abdul Karim. After some days, he died. Then, Shamshuddin Ahmed was selected as the second principal of that college.

The college nationalized in 1982. In 1999, 400 books were bought for 3075 BDT for creating a college library.[1]
