Education in Murshidabad

The standard of education in Murshidabad, in comparison to the other districts of West Bengal is quite comfortable. The literacy rate of Murshidabad as recorded in the last demographic survey of 2001, is 66 %, which is even more than the national average. Since independence the state Government, with the grants aided by the Center has been working to improve the standard of education in Murshidabad. Presently Murshidabad can be named as one of the educationally developed district in West Bengal.

There are about 3170 primary schools, 110 upper primary schools and 9 higher secondary schools operating throughout the district. The schools all are government run and are affiliated to the West Bengal Board. However the government has also implemented certain measures to provide at least the basic elementary education to the people in the rural area and bring them under the school system, thereby improving the standar6d of education in Murshidabad. Some NGO's have also come up to provide help to the government in this solemn aim. However the literacy rate of 2001 makes the implemented measures of Government fairly successful.

The Government has proposed several funding schemes, to provide the dual assistance- the funds supplies monetary aid to those sustaining schools, where mainly the rural folk, who cannot pay the school fees come and also provide alternative empowerment strategy to the rural poor. The Government programs not only augment the educational growth in Murshidabad but at the same time provide alternative employment to the underdeveloped section.

Apart from the inducement of the system of elementary education in Murshidabad, government has also emphasized the growth of the higher education and vocational training in Murshidabad. There are 4 engineering colleges in Murshidabad and 1 Polytechnic College that accentuate the growth rate of vocational education in Murshidabad and also produce a large quantity of workforce. Since raw silk production is the principal money making sector in Murshidabad, government has highlighted the training of Sericulture. The Sericulture training institute here provided degrees to the students and with the educational insistence also produces an ample quantity of working individuals to the local silk industries.

Not only the technical institutions, there are colleges providing Undergraduate courses in all the streams of Arts, Commerce and Science. In recent times some private schools run either by the religious institutions or by any private concerns have been sprang up to supplement the educational development in Murshidabad, which was induced by the government since the independence of India.

Murshidabad is one of the districts, which has now become a prominent name in the educational arena of West Bengal.
