They met Z. Abedin, the-then Principal of Nimapara College a veritable tower of strength & Inspiration and a meeting was convened at S.B.N. High School, Blaipatna which was attended by local gentries & such eminent personalities of the locality like Sri Padmanav Mishra, I.A.S., (Rtd.), Dr. Aniruddh Mishra, Sri Gopinath Bhoi, the-then M.L.A. & a historic resolution was passes to start the college from the session 1978-79.

Institutional Distinctiveness

Students are key to the academic arch of teaching and learning process of a society. In higher education domain they are the inseparable part of academics and administrative ambiance. In our institution top most priority is given to Student-Teacher Relation. Teachers play a vital role in shaping and building the inherent potential of the students. They treat the students as their own children and maintain a friendly and cordial relation with them. The psychology of the young minds is read by the teachers as their philosopher and guide. In addition of maintaining a good teaching atmosphere they also try to study their attitude and behaviour. Students are very open in their views and critics in front of their teachers. They give proper respect and try to behave benevolently with all the staff of institution. During any programme or function or meeting, students maintain discipline which is always praised by the external visitors and speakers.

Thus, the student-teacher relation is the main source of success of the institution.
