About Us

Genesis : Higher education in Tripura had a late start. Maharaja Bir Bikram (MBB) College, the first degree college in the State, started functioning under the University of Calcutta only in 1947. Not that there was no attempt in the past in Princely Tripura to establish any higher educational institution. As early as 1901, Radhakishore Manikya made an attempt to establish a degree college in the-then tiny capital town Agartala; but as the proposal did not fulfill the necessary requirements, it did not get approval from the Calcutta University. In 1937, Bir Bikramkishore Manikya, the last Maharaja of Tripura, had planned for establishing a college again at Agartala and an area of 254 acres of land, consisting of undulated tilla land having interposed lakes almost all around, in the eastern part of Agartala, was earmarked for that under the 'Vidyapattan Scheme'. A committee under the name 'Vidyapattan Governing Committee' consisting of 10 members with the Minister as its President was appointed by the Maharaja to carry out the scheme of higher education and a sum of Rs. 50,000 was placed at its disposal at the first instance. On 7 May, 1937, Maharaja Bir Bikram laid the foundation-stone of the college under the scheme. But with the outbreak of the Second World War (1939-45), the work of construction had to be abandoned. The vulnerability of Tripura became apparent after the fall of Burma to the Japanese in 1942. The ground floor of the unfinished College building was converted into an Army Hospital for British Army moving to and from Burma. When the Second World War was over, the construction work could not be started immediately due to certain difficulties and on 17 May, 1947, Maharaja Bir Bikram breathed his last and Tripura became restive for various reasons. As a result, the entire scheme of 'Vidyapattan' could not be implemented into reality in time. The MBB College (popularly known as the 'Dream College'), affiliated to the Calcutta University, was once the only college in the state.

As time progressed, to meet the growing demands of a large number of students - who after the partition of the country had migrated to Tripura from the erstwhile East Pakistan (now Bangladesh)—some other colleges came into being at private initiatives,e.g.Ramkrishna Mahavidyalaya at Kailasahar in 1950; Belonia College at Belonia in 1964; Ramthakur College at Agartala in 1967 - and all were affiliated to the Calcutta University. That showed the urge of the people for higher education because, compared to the national average, along with the growth of population in the state, the literacy rate of Tripura was also higher since independence despite economic backwardness of the common people. As the students and people of the state were pressing hard for quite sometime since the seventies of the last century to uplift the existing three private degree Colleges of state into government colleges; in 1982 the three private degree colleges of Tripura were taken over by the state government, in spite of its limited means. Thus all the degree colleges in Tripura became ultimately government colleges at that time.

However, due to the geographic isolation ( the partition of the country debarred Tripura from using the traditional communication routes by road or rail on the other sides of the border) and the distance from the University of Calcutta, it was virtually not possible on the part of a large number of poor students of Tripura to continue further studies after graduation. Hence, in the late sixties and early seventies of the last century, there were big students' movements in Tripura with the demand for a University in the State. To meet the growing popular demands, a plan to upgrade MBB College into a Post Graduate College was first initiated. With a view to achieving that goal, post graduate classes in three subjects - History, Economics and Mathematics - were also started in the MBB College. But the idea of upgrading MBB College into a Post Graduate College or University did not materialize. Rather, Tripura was sanctioned by the UGC in 1976 a post-graduate wing of the Calcutta University, named Calcutta University Post

Introduction

Tripura University was established on 2nd October 1987. To a great extent it fulfills the aspirations of the people of Tripura for their quest for higher studies. Before the establishment of the University the colleges of Tripura had to seek affiliation from the Calcutta University, which was becoming difficult for the colleges and also the students. The demand of the students was finally fulfilled on the fateful day of 18th May 1985 when the then education minister Dasharath Deb laid the foundation for Tripura University. The foundation stone was laid on the sprawling 75 acres of land that was donated by the state government, at Suryamaninagar near Agartala.

Presently, Tripura University offers post-graduate courses on sixteen subjects. The subjects that are offered for the post graduate degree are Political Science, Geography and Disaster Management, History, English, Philosophy, Analytical and Applied Economics, Sanskrit, Physics, Commerce, Hindi, Zoology, Bengali, Kokborok, Botany, Chemistry, Human Physiology and Mathematics. A number of Departments, Directorates and Centers under the supervision of the university provide 38 degree courses. There are all total twenty four general and technical colleges in Tripura which are affiliated with Tripura University.

Tripura University enjoys the highest autonomy in all matters of higher education in the state. Some of the other facilities provided by Tripura University are NSS Unit,Computer Centre, Sports Board, Students amenities' center with a canteen and mini gym, 100- bedded hostel for boys and 40- bedded hostel for girls, a branch of State Bank of India, a Post-office etc.

History

Tripura University epitomizes the aspirations of the state's people for academic excellence at the highest level and quest for knowledge. It is axiomatic that knowledge alone forms the basis of progress and development in the present internet-driven world. However, also of crucial importance are successful dissemination of knowledge and ease of accessibility to learners. With its cryptic motto 'pursuit of excellence' Tripura University has dedicated itself to this noble task ever since it had been launched on October 2 1987. The dream of the state's people had come true on the birth anniversary day of the 'Father of the Nation'. A flash-back to the historical background of the university sheds fascinating light on the series of developments that culminated in the setting up of the university. The state's first institution of higher education, MBB College, had commenced functioning from 1947 with affiliation from Calcutta University but in the immediate aftermath of partition the population of the state registered a steep growth and so did the number of students aspiring for higher education.

The launching of the MBB College was soon followed by the setting up in 1950 of Ram Krishna College in Kailasahar , present headquarter of North Tripura district . The year 1964 saw the launching of Belonia College in South Tripura , followed within three years by the establishment of Ram Thakur College in 1967 at Agartala. The students of the state remained hamstrung by one crucial fact : all the colleges had to secure affiliation with Calcutta University and no scope for university education existed within Tripura. Since the late sixties of last century student movements within Tripura consistently focused on the demand for expansion of opportunities for higher education and setting of Tripura's own university . Responding to rising demands Calcutta University authority agreed to have post-graduate classes on History, Mathematics and Economics held in MBB College and in 1976 University Grants Commission (UGC) formally recognized this as Calcutta University Post Graduate Centre (CUPGC). This only further intensified the state's quest for higher education and demand for a separate university . It however took nine more years to initiate measures for setting up Tripura's own university. It was on the momentous day of May 18 1985 that the then education minister and legendary tribal leader Dasharath Deb laid the foundation for Tripura University on the sprawling 75 acres (300,000 m2) of land , donated by the state government , at Suryamaninagar , ten km south of Agartala. The work on construction progressed rapidly and the state assembly passed the Tripura University Act in 1987 , extending legislative sanction to the process of launching the University. It was on October 2 , birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi , that Tripura University formally came into being as a towering embodiment of the hopes and aspirations of the people .

At present Tripura University provides post-graduate courses on sixteen subjects while the various Departments, Directorates and Centres within it provide 38 degree courses. All twenty four general and technical colleges within the state are affiliated with Tripura University which is now the veritable nerve centre of the state's higher education , enjoying the highest possible autonomy in all matters.

Tagore telegram shows special relation with Tripura kings

Tripuras last king Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur paid Rs 3,000 to Rabindranath Tagore for accompanying Dhirendra Krishna Debbarman, a famous sculptor, on his trip to Bali and Java in 1927, a document, hitherto unpublished, revealed.

The vice-chancellor of Tripura University, Prof. Arunoday Saha, who is an authority on the special relationship the kings of Tripura had with poet Tagore and Viswa-Bharati university, recently released a copy of the unpublished telegram which he received from Prajna Devi, a member of Tripuras royal family.

The telegram, which was sent by Tagore on June 28, 1927, read, His Highness, Maharaja Tripura, Agartala, May I seek your help about Dhirens expenses approximately three thousand rupees accompanying me Java giving him unique opportunity for his artistic career - Rabindra Nath Tagore.

Dhirendra Krishna Debbarman, who is a close relative of the Tripura king, later became a renowned painter, sculptor and principal of Kala Bhavan, Visva Bharati, Saha said.

Holding up the copy of the telegram, Saha said, It bore the signature of the king Bir Bikram, dated July 5, 1927 and an order from the king for payment of the amount.
