Calcutta Debating Circle is a non-profit making organization based in Kolkata which works primarily towards encouraging healthy discussions and interactions based on contents and perspectives for the overall benefit of the society. The Calcutta Debating Circle strongly believes that the students are to be energized with the objective of strengthening the foundation of their development.

In order to continue the tradition of hosting such events and enriching the vibrant cultural heritage of Kolkata the Calcutta Debating Circle has endeavoured to.
