From Principal’s Desk



Established in the year 1964, Darjeeling Polytechnic happens to be one of the oldest technical institutes in the state of West Bengal and so far is the only technical Institution in the Darjeeling hills. As the Institute is located in the hills of Darjeeling, it has a unique feature of its own and serves the aspirations of the people of hills.

We are well aware that there has been a huge advancement in the field of Engineering and Technology in the last couple of decades. Irrespective of the discipline of Engineering, there has been immense progress with development of new and state of the art technologies. From bullock carts to supersonic jet planes, from simple letter writing as one of the means to communication to the latest communication devices, from earthen road to high class bituminous and concrete roads, the world has under gone a metamorphic change. One must note that the only raw material that can make such a great turnaround is EDUCATION.

Education, regarded as a ‘lifeline’ of civilizations through the ages, has no alternative for a society that wants growth and development in real sense. Education is undeniably capable of enlightening narrow minds into liberal ones, transforming derogatory ideas into futurist ones and metamorphosing futile actions into fruitful ones.

In its 55 years of untiring service to Technical Education, Darjeeling Polytechnic has produced many diploma engineers. The Institute has played an immensely significant role not only in imparting technical education but also in strengthening civil society and guiding marginalized youths to become responsible citizens of the country.

I sincerely anticipate that the students studying in the Institute shall develop the personality, career and values taking maximum benefits of the facilities available to them. Be better citizen and glorify the reputation of this 55 years old Institute.
