The start was slow but the inertia was explosive as is evident from the history of Government College of Science, Raipur, which was founded in the year 1948. The barracks near the Old Museum and the Government High School were the stepping-stones from where the journey of Higher Education in Science in Central India was started.Late Prof. Umadas Mukherji was the Founder Principal who was given the responsibility to start the College of Science from the minimum of every thing. To begin with, the college was affiliated to the Sagar University Sagar imparted 2 year education, called Intermediate Science (I. Sc.), which was upgraded to graduate level in 1950. The initial enrollment was 126. Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Maths were the only options available at the U.G. level. In the year 1956, a new wave started with the commencement of P.G. classes in Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Hindi (1960), English, Economics and History (1961) were introduced at the P.G. level but this drift was for a short period and ended in 1975. Soon the college returned to the original discipline of Science.
