The University of Kalyani, established in 1960, is a state-government administered, affiliating and research university in Nadia district of West Bengal, India. It offers courses at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels.



The university was established on 1 November 1960 by the Kalyani University Act 1960 of the state of West Bengal. The University of Kalyani is a State- University and its activities are guided by the Kalyani University Act, 1981 (amended up to 2001), enacted by the Govt. of West Bengal. The Act is supplemented by 'Statutes', 'Ordinances','Regulations' and 'Rules'. This act replaced 'The Kalyani University (Temporary Suppression) Act, 1978, which in turn replaced 'The Kalyani University Act, 1960. The University Grants Commission accorded recognition to the university.


The university is placed in an urban setting touching the boundaries of some green rural areas. The eastern bank of the Ganges is only 2000 meters from the University and its serene background is only 50 km from Kolkata. It is close to "Kalyani Ghoshpara" railway station, 10 minutes walking distance to Administration Building from the station, and the other campuses are around it. During Second world war this land was under the control of American army who maintained an arm depot here. Few roadways and other constructions are still there to prove that past history.

    Hepatitis C nosode was developed by Rajesh Shah with a group of Molecular Biologists at the University of Kalyani, where it was demonstrated that the nosode sourced from Hepatitis C virus could produce anti-cancer effect on cell lines in a laboratory model. This was one big achievement by the biologists in the field.
