Entrance of West Bengal State University

They were, through a government notification (No.300-Edn(U)/ IU-38/08), transferred to this new university.[7][8] The University began functioning under its first Vice-Chancellor Ashoke Ranjan Thakur, the erstwhile Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Jadavpur University.[citation needed]
