Bhavan’s Calcutta Kendra was started in the year 1975 at Meredith Street, Kolkata as a Book Store and Advertisement Department. Shri Vidhyarthi was looking after the Book Store and Mr. Thomas was the In-Charge of Advertisement Department. In 1978 Shri C. V. Viswanathan was appointed to look after Book Store Department and the Advertisement Department was closed.
In 1980 a land measuring 5.25 acres was allotted by the Government of West Bengal to Bhavan’s Kolkata Kendra for starting its educational activities at Salt Lake. The foundation stone for the School Building was laid down by the Former President of India, Shri Neelam Sanjiva Reddy on 6th December, 1980. This was possible due to the efforts of Shri Giridharilal Mehta and Shri S. Ramakrishnan with the good wishes of the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, Shri Jyoti Basu. The Kendra Committee was then chaired by Dr. Pratap Chandra Chunder, Former Education Minister of Government of India. The School building was constructed with financial help of Shri Basudev Kanoria. Hence, the School was named as Bhavan’s Gangabux Kanoria Vidyamandir. In 1980 Bhavan had also started a College of Communication and Management at Salt Lake premises and another at Bhowanipore under the name of Asutosh College of Communication and Management to run the Post Graduate Diploma Courses of Rajendra Prasad Institute of Communication & Management, Mumbai.
In 1984 Bhavan’s Gangabux Kanoria Vidyamandir was started in the Salt Lake premises when Mr. Amalendu Bose, Planning Officer and Director of Birla Industrial and Technological Museum was appointed as the Director of Bhavan’s Kolkata Kendra. In 1992 Shri K. V. Gopalkrishnan took charge of the Kolkata Kendra and developed the School. He established a School at Agartala in the year 1996 and a Centre at Guwahati, Assam. In the year 1997 as School named as Bhavan’s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Vidyaniketan was started at Haldia, East Midnapore, West Bengal. A Management College was then established in Kolkata Salt Lake Campus in the year 2000.
