The Bhawanipur Educational Society College was founded in 1966 with the motto “Education For Excellence” through the Bhawanipur Gujarati Education Society. Accredited by NAAC and Affiliated to the University of Calcutta, BESC was created under article 30 (1) of the Indian constitution, which guarantees linguistic minorities, such as the Gujarati speaking community in Calcutta, the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice. In 1966, we started with less than a hundred students, but in the decades since, BESC has strived to provide an excellent education to a truly diverse student body, admitting eligible pupils regardless of linguistic, religious or regional background.

We want to continue to upgrade and supplement our curriculum to provide for industry and life ready skills to our students.
The Institution has evolved, flowering into the multi-disciplined, multicultural, multi-ethnic entity of the present. At The Bhawanipur Education Society College, it’s not just the degree but a pathway to success. If you meet any of our students you will wish to be a part of BESC.
