In the early 1950s, the township of Kalyani was developed as the brainchild of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, the then Chief Minister of West Bengal. Kalyani was planned to grow as a satellite town in the long-term perspective plan of the Calcutta Urban Agglomeration. For planned development of the town, the need for emphasising education and health infrastructure was duly emphasised in the master plan and the University of Kalyani was established in November 1960, as a unitary university with the faculties of Arts, Science, Education, and Agriculture. Since inception, the University marked its progress and attracted students of the region as well as many eminent scholars of the country. However, in its early stage of growth, the University was bifurcated in the year 1975 when its Faculty of Agriculture evolved into a full-fledged agricultural university, named as Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, which was established in the Mohanpur campus.
