After making its
foray into the sphere of higher and technical education, the ERD
Foundation has now embarked on providing quality education in
primary and secondary level so that our boys and girls can
confidently qualify for admission in any top class institution
for professional courses. Moreover, with this kind of solid
foundation they would also become more confident to face the
competitive examinations such as the IAS, IPS, ACS etc. With
this goal in mind, ERDF set up its first Central Public School,
CPS Patharkandi in Karimganj District in April 2008.
The second CBSE
affiliated school of ERD Foundation - Central Public School,
Badarpur has been set up in Umarpur, near the Badarpur Town
which was inaugurated by His Excellency Shri. R. S. Mooshahary,
Governor of Meghalaya on 21st January, 2010.
Badarpur, the Gateway to Barak valley as it lies close to the
National Highway No. 44 that connects Manipur, Meghalaya,
Mizoram, Tripura and the rest of the Barak Valley, has a rich
history of being one of the busiest railway junctions even
during the pre-independence era. Hindustan Paper Corporation's
Panchgram Paper Mill is situated in its vicinity. It is a
business centre that caters to entire Barak Valley and vast
parts of the neighbouring states including Meghalaya. Moreover,
Badarpur is also well connected by both railways and river
transport. The School is being built at a spot which is serene
and peaceful and therefore an ideal campus for academic pursuits
for all students living in its hinterland.
The plot for the School has been provided by the family members
of Late Ahasanur Reza Choudhury, who was a leading citizen and
social worker of Badarpur. The School is designed to fulfil his
dream of making Badarpur a centre of educational excellence and
bringing prosperity to the people of the area. Accordingly, the
