How the college was Born

         AI-Ammen Memorial Minority College is a notably noble achievement of the AI-Ameen Memorial Society for Education & Health Program. It was founded in the year 2004. The College is a brain-child of its founder, Late Prof. Md. Roushan Ali, a patron of letters, a farsighted and noble hearted philanthropist. The impediment of his old age did not stand on his way to till his demise to offer encouragement and valuable suggestions every now and then to the founder Secretary of the College Prof. Dr. Nurul Haque to bring it to its full flagged state.

      With an aim to imparting education (Higher Education) among the educationally backward minorities of West Bengal but not to the exclusion of the students of other communities, the Society humbly prayed to the Govt. of West Bengal for according necessary permission to the establishment of a Minority College under the Article 30 of the Constitution. The state Govt. after necessary verification and with the kind recommendation of the Hon’ble National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions, New Delhi, kindly accorded requisite permission to the establishment of the College with Minority status vide W.B. Govt. Order No. 421-Edn(CS)/4C -50/05, dated 26/04/2007, and also the minority status certificate was issues by the NCMEI in the same year, together with the inclusion of the College under the West Bengal colleges (Payment of Salaries) Act, 1978. We are very much grateful to the State Government.

It is a co-educational institution for higher learning. The College was included Under Section 2(f) of the UGC act,1956, in 2008 and Under Section 12B of the same act in 2018.
