Harish Chandra Post Graduate College, Varanasi is a Government aided college, and is one of the premier seat of learning of Eastern U.P under the auspices of 'Harish Chandra Vidyalaya Samiti, (a non profitable charitable institution registered under Indian Society Act 1860). We boast a rich tradition of quality education since 1866 when the great Hindi Laureate 'Bhartendu Harish Chandra' laid the foundation of this noble institution with five students. A small cause taken up 140 years back is now a great mission. Ex-Prime Minister of India Late Lai Bahadur Shastri, Ex-Prime Minister of Nepal Late Visheshwar Prasad Koirala, Great Educationist and Ex, Chief Minister of U.P. Late Sampoornanand, Brigadier Usman are glimpses of few names of our alumni who have taken this mission to new heights.
