Domkal Subdivision is one of the biggest Subdivisions in Murshidabad District. Murshidabad District is divided into two regions— Bagri Bhumi and Rarh Bhumi. The River Ganges plays a major role in dividing Murshidabad district geographically. The Bagri region is agriculturally developed by producing & cultivating various crops. In the Ancient period, the district was popularly known as Gourbanga. Karnasubarna was the capital of Gour Banga, which Raja Shashanka established. At that time, Karnasubarna was developed as a center of traditional education. In the mediaeval period, this region was popularly known as Maksudabad. During the Mughal era, it was known as Murshidabad, the capital of Subah Bangla. During the Colonial period, Murshidabad was famous for cotton and clothes production. After the Battle of Plassey, the fame of Murshidabad gradually declined. After independence, Murshidabad became a backward district. The West Bengal government has taken initiatives to build several schools, colleges, and other educational institutions to move backward Murshidabad district forward. Domkal Girls’ College was established in 2011, which was the 2nd girls’ College in this district and 1st girls’ college since independence.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
