Welcome to Humayun Kabir Institute
Humayun Kabir Institute (formerly known as Dilkusha Institute) is one of the minority Institutions of Kolkata and has successfully completed 86 years of its existence. About 100 years back, Park Circus locality was covered with huts and jungles, people hardly visited this locality, if they had to come, they used to move out of the place before dusk for security reasons.
In this h1storical per1od, few young people couldd think of having an Institutron, which would cater the need as a Library well as a place to teach the boys at Primary Level. 1920 Was the year, when Late Sk. Abid Hossain along with Late Serajudd1n Ahmed, Late Aftabuddin Ahmed and a few other young men of Park Circus area formed the Dilkusha Institute (now named as Humayun Kabir Institute) in a small room at Jhowtala Road with a fund of Re. 1 and 4 anas. The objectives were to impart education and encourage cultural activities among the local youths.
