The introduction of English education was a significant event of lord William Bentinck’s administration. He appointed a committee headed by Lord Macaulay, to make recommendations for the promotion of education. In his report, Macaulay emplasized the promation of European literature and science through English medium to the people of India.

This recommendation was whole heartedly accepted by William Bentinck. The Government Resolution in 1835 made English the official and literary language of India. In the same year, William Bentinck laid foundation of the Calcutta medical college.
