Chandrapur College is a Government-aided College, affiliated to The University of Burdwan. It was established in August, 1985 on about six acres of land in the village of Chandrapur under the Sargram Gram Panchayat of Katwa Block -I in Burdwan District. The metalled road by the College runs through the village Jabagram that gave birth to Hasan Azizul Haque, the celebrated Bengali story-writer of both Bangladesh and West Bengal. That the agrarian village had farsighted people to feel the need for knowledge and education is affirmed by a Higher Secondary School on the threshold of centenary. Keeping in mind the pressing need of the students from feeder schools around, the arduous people of the local area tried to found a centre of higher education and thus the College came into being.
