Hijli College started functioning from August 1995.Bounded by vastly stretched forest of sal, Akashmoni and Eucalyptus on one side, the college is situated in the midst of a green meadow of Kuchlachati, about 1.5 Km,towards the eastern side of the Prembazar Health Centre. For quite sometime, the residents of Hijli Co-operative society, Sonamukhi, Kuchlachati and many other localities around have been facing severe problems owing to the absence of an academic institution in the region, which would provide higher education to their wards. Concerned at this scenario, a group of dedicated, academic people came forward for the establishment of a college in the region. As a result, Hijli College came into existence.
Since its inception, the college endeavours to provide quality education concerning the fundamental condition of human existence in the changing perspective. This is of immense importance especially for the educationally disadvantage students of the backward area where it is located.
The students of Hijli College, affiliated to Vidyasagar University, Midnapore, have fared extremely well at the university level examination consistently.
