The Sabarna Roy Choudhury Paribar Parishad on August 1, 2001 moved to the Calcutta High Court seeking Justice over the matter of baselessly regarding Job Charnock as the founder of Kolkata and celebreting the city s birthday on 24 th August wasting huge amount of public money. The appeal is a public interest litigation where eminent historians, doctors, professors, journalists all have seek the truth of history. The court will hear the matter from time to time.
The Calcutta high Court in the meantime formed a historical commission to find out the truth about the foundation story of Kolkata. The commission has submitted its 9 page report to the Hon'ble court. The commission comprised of five noted historians. They were Dr. Nimai Sadhan Bose, Prof. Sushil Chowdhury, Prof. pradip Sinha, Prof. Barun De and Prof. Arun Dasgupta.
The court on May 16 TH, 2003 on its historical Verdict cancelled the name of Job Charnock as Kolkata founder and also the birth date. At last we are free from the colonialism.
A Welfare Fund has been introduced for the needy and poor family members. This fund will try to help and support the needy students and sick family members.
