Bhavans Kolkata Kendra

Message from Chairman

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to the online portal of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Kolkata Kendra. Since its inception in 1975 on Meredith Street and subsequent expansion to the vibrant landscape of Salt Lake in 1980, our Kendra has been a cornerstone of educational excellence and cultural enrichment.

Founded under the able guidance of Mr. Amalendu Bose, a stalwart administrator, our institution has consistently progressed, gaining recognition and acclaim. Through the dedicated leadership of luminaries like Shri K V Gopalakrishnan and Shri G V Subramanian, Bhavan’s Kolkata Kendra has evolved into a dynamic hub of learning, encompassing not only traditional academic pursuits but also cultural and social activities.

Our Salt Lake campus stands as a testament to our commitment to providing a conducive environment for holistic development. Boasting an expansive playground, state-of-the-art sports facilities, and a modern auditorium, we strive to nurture both the intellect and spirit of our students. With amenities such as Wi-Fi, CCTV surveillance, and 24×7 power backup, we prioritize safety and technological advancement.

Cultural activities are an integral part of our identity, with annual festivals like NAAD, Dance Drama Festival, and Folk Music and Dance fostering creativity and artistic expression. In collaboration with Infosys Foundation, Bengaluru, we have been actively involved in promoting cultural initiatives, supporting emerging artists, and preserving our rich heritage.

As the current Chairman, I am honored to lead this institution forward, emphasizing a holistic approach to education, cultural enrichment, and social responsibility. Explore our website to discover the myriad facets of Bhavan’s Kolkata Kendra and join us in our mission to empower individuals with knowledge, values, and a deep appreciation for our cultural heritage.
