The government of West Bengal through an Act of the Legislative Assembly has passed West Bengal Act XXVIII of 2007 implementing a long-standing public demand in creating the university named West Bengal State University (Barasat, North 24 Paragans). This became functional from the academic session 2008–09. On 26 May 2008 there were 63 colleges formerly affiliated with the University of Calcutta. They were, through a government notification (No.300-Edn(U)/ IU-38/08), transferred to this new university.[1][2]
