Department of Hindi:

Cachar College was established in 1960. From the very inception of the College, there wastremendous demand from the students and guardians to open the Department of Hindi. At that time, the colleges of Barak Valley were affiliated to Gauhati University, and there was no Hindi Department in that University.As a resultany department dedicated tothe study ofHindi couldnot be opened inthecolleges of thevalley. Eventually, the Department of Hindi came into existence in Gauhati University in the year 1970.
