Welcome to Joypur Panchanan Roy College. Established in 1986 as a part of the scheme of the West Bengal Government to spread Higher Education in the rural areas of West Bengal, Joypur Panchanan Roy College is situated in the village of Joypur in Amta Block II in the district of Howrah. Joypur is connected by Jhikira-Howrah bus route (L-3) from Howrah, the district headquarters which is at a distance of fifty kms and Joypur-Bagnan bus route from Bagnan which is 21 kms away. The people of Joypur mainly belong to the agricultural community and the area is mainly inhabited by the people belonging to both financially and educationally backward classes. Being situated in the delta of the rivers of the Mundeswari and Damodar, popularly known as the river of sorrow in this part of the land, the area is badly affected by flood almost each year. The waters released from the different dams of the reservoirs seem to be the scourge of the peaceful farmers of this area.

The College at present is located in a campus measuring more than four acres of land and runs the Humanities and Commerce streams. Like most of the small colleges in the rural areas, it has its plus and minus points. New projects are now implemented, new constructions are taking place and with them, we believe, a new era will start for the College.


  • To spread Higher Education in the rural area;
