The journey of Mirik College is an exemplary testimony of the words of the great Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon – “A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind”. The College had extremely humble origins when a group of visionaries from the Mirik sub-division in Darjeeling under the aegis of Mr B. B. Thapa, Mr. Sagar Subba, Mr. B. B. Lama, Mr. G. L. Lakhotia, Mr. L.B. Dewan, Mr. T. B. Niraula, Mr. D. B. Puri, Mr. M. K. Tamang, Mr. Y. N. Dhakal and Mr. T. S. Moktan decided to contribute as aspiring civilians to the development of higher education in the area. Their assiduous efforts led to the grant of permission from the Government of West Bengal to establish a degree college in Mirik.
