J. D. Birla Institute (JDBI) was established in 1962 and has completed more than 50 years in service to higher education. In acknowledgement of its continuous quest for excellence and the exemplary standards it has set and maintained through the decade, in 2010 JDBI was awarded the highest possible grading of “A” by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The Institute is a private unaided College affiliated to Jadavpur University, a world renowned Center of Excellence since 1963.

The late Sushila Devi Birla, wife of eminent industrialist late L. N. Birla established a college for girls in her mother-in-law’s name in June 1962. The College was named Smt. Jawahari Devi Birla Institute of Home Science and it filled a much felt gap in the scientific education of young women from Calcutta’s conservative families.

Over five decades, the Institute has grown with the needs and demands of the changing times.

A Department of Commerce was added in 1997 and in tune with the shifting zeitgeist; another campus was started in 2002 to house the co-educational Department of Management. At this time, the name of the institution was simplified to J. D. Birla Institute. In the year 2009, four new professionally oriented under-graduate B.Sc courses (Food Science & Nutrition Management; Textile Science, Clothing & Fashion Studies; Interior Designing and Human Development) were introduced apart from two new post-graduate M.Sc courses (Food & Nutrition and Textiles & Clothing) in 2009. M.Com was introduced and the Home Science Programme discontinued in 2013.

Today, the Institute has been ranked high amongst Institutes of higher learning in the country by several rating agencies including India Today, Career 360 and Times Magazine.
