Tripura University has come a long way in its quest for excellence as a higher education institution in this tiny landlocked state of Tripura, starting modestly in 1976 as the Post-Graduate Wing of Calcutta University, becoming a state university in 1987, and finally becoming a Central University in 2007. By providing top-notch instruction and technological advancements in academic and research activities, the University is committed to the cause of empowering and developing the people of this state and the surrounding area. The campus is beautiful and located in a zero-pollution zone, creating the ideal academic environment for fostering the development of young and prospective minds.
Tripura University has accepted the duty as a traditional university to maintain and advance the illustrious history of the state's indigenous art forms and folk, oral, and multi-dimensional cultural traditions. There are currently two faculties, forty-four departments, four centers of study, and four departments under the directorate of distance education at the University. The Directorate of Distance Education provides educational assistance to the working-class and socioeconomically disadvantaged communities in this state's remote, hilly regions.
The University has big plans for the future, including building more dormitories for men and women, including ones for research scholars, improving the canteen, building guest houses and housing for faculty and non-teaching staff, utilizing cutting-edge technology, and promoting multimedia-based interactive teaching and learning. The University is steadily transitioning to e-governance for practical, precise, and environmentally responsible administration to keep up with the demands of the rapidly changing times.
History of University
Tripura's higher education system was slow to get going. The first degree-granting institution in the State, Maharaja Bir Bikram (MBB) College, didn't begin operations until 1947 under the auspices of the University of Calcutta. In Princely Tripura, attempts to create higher education institutions have not gone unnoticed in the past. Radha Kishore Manikya tried to start a degree college in the then-tiny capital city of Agartala as early as 1901; Calcutta University rejected the plan because it did not meet the standards.
The "Vidyapattan Scheme" designated 254 acres of property in the eastern portion of Agartala, consisting of undulating tilla land with intervening lakes virtually all around, for Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya, the last Maharaja of Tripura, who had planned to reopen a college there. Maharaja Bir Bikram laid the cornerstone for the college created by the plan on May 7, 1937. The Maharaja formed a committee known as the "Vidyapattan Governing Committee," with ten members and the Minister serving as its president to carry out the higher education program. Rs. 50,000 was initially made available to it.
For the British Army going into and out of Burma, the ground floor of the unfinished College building was transformed into an Army Hospital. Due to many obstacles, construction work could not begin immediately after the Second World War ended. Additionally, on May 17, 1947, Maharaja Bir Bikram passed away, and Tripura became unrest for some reasons. As a result, "Vidyapattan" could not be realized in due time. Formerly the only institution in the state, MBB College, also referred to as the "Dream College," is connected with Calcutta University.
Tripura University began its journey in 1987 with the spirit of the Act. According to the Tripura University Act, the University's mission is to "disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities" in the state in fields that are currently relevant to society and the nation (with the motto "pursuit of excellence"), as well as to make special provisions for studies in tribal life and culture and introduce vocational subjects to give students access to employment opportunities. According to the Act, the University must organize specialized certificates, degrees, and post-graduate programs in many issues.
