About College

The establishment of Milli Al-Ameen College (For Girls) by the Milli Educational Organization (Registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act, 1961) fulfilled the long-cherished desire of the Muslims of Kolkata to have a degree college for girls belonging to educationally backward sections of the society in general. The land on which this college stands tall, was obtained from the pioneer physician and scientist, Dr. Upendranath Brahmachari, who is renowned for having invented the antidote to quartan fever.  A stalwart figure, who was the first Indian to be nominated for the Nobel Prize, came forward in this collective march for the emancipation of young women. Though he was offered far better prices, he chose to sell this land off way cheaper to the Milli Organisation, only because he, too, wanted to contribute and leave behind an indelible impression in this noble social endeavour. Not only was the land handed down from an illustrious personality, the foundation stone of the College building was also laid by an equally exalted personage. The foundation was laid on March 19, 1984 by the Internationally acclaimed Islamic theologist and scholar, Hazrat Maulana Syed Abdul Hasan Ali Nadvi, who is the only Indian till date to receive the key to the holy shrine of Kaaba. Over the years, the college constructed a four-storeyed campus in accordance to the plan sanctioned by the Calcutta Municipal Corporation with donations, contributions, and subscriptions collected from members and institutions of the Muslim Community. The College was formally started in 1992 with the anticipation of getting an affiliation from the University of Calcutta. Through persistent efforts and dedicated efforts, the college succeeded in getting full affiliation from the University of Calcutta in 2000. Additionally, the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions granted minority status to the College under Article 30 of the Constitution of India in the year 2008. Over the years, the College has persistently worked towards achieving the aim of empowering women and educating generations. The College is at present enrolled in the UGC panel of recognized colleges (in West Bengal) under section 2(f) of the UGC Act.
