The Madrasah Education system in Bengal was grown up and flourished with the foundation of the Calcutta Madrasah in 1780 by the British East India Company. In 1915, the new scheme of Madrasah Education was introduced by the initiatives of Moulana Abu Nasar Mohammad Waheed, I.E.S., the renowned educationist and administrator and the then Principal of Dacca Senior Madrasah. The East Bengal Secondary Education Board (1921), the Board of Islamic Intermediate and Secondary Education Dacca for High Madrasah Education (1922) and the Central Madrasah Examination Board for Senior Madrasah Education (1927) were established to conduct the Madrasah Examinations till 1947. As per recommendation of the Moazzamuddin Committee (1946), the Central Madrasah Examination Board was converted to the Madrasah Education Board, Bengal and later, in 1950 it was renamed as the West Bengal Madrasah Education Board, the oldest Board of Madrasah Education in our Country.

In the year 1994, the Board had been given the status of a statutory autonomous body by passing the West Bengal Board of Madrasah Education Act 1994 (West Bengal Act, XXXIX of 1994) in the West Bengal State legislature. Now the Board is allowed to function with the same academic, administrative and financial powers, facilities, status and privileges as enjoyed by the other Education Boards, Councils and similar Bodies in the State Government. Board’s activities are regulated by the relevant Acts, Rules, Regulations and guidelines of the Department of Minority Affairs  and Madrasah Education Department in the Government of West Bengal. The responsibilities of the Board is not only to direct, supervise and control of all types of Madrasahs but also to make these institutions as centre of excellence.
