View Profile


Cachar College is a premier institution of higher education in south Assam. With eighteen departments spread over the three academic steams of Arts, Commerce and Science and around three thousand students on roll, the College has an imposing presence in charting the trajectory of higher learning in Barak Valley.


The College since its inception in 1960 has already carved a niche for itself in this region as it has been serving the needs of the underprivileged and weaker sections of the society. With the passage of time the agenda for higher education in India have undergone revisions and amendments. Cachar College has nurtured a spirit of moving ahead and keeping abreast with the changing paradigm accordingly. In a globalized world the role of research in an academic institute is important for its growth and sustainability. The college therefore facilitates and endeavours to create a congenial environment of research among the faculty members through Research Cell of the college.


Cachar College in its own modest way is constantly on the job to create access of higher education to the maximum number of students on the one hand, and on the other, the College is trying to excel in terms of globally defined parameters of excellence. To meet the challenge in the higher education sector we are striving to keep a right balance between quantity and quality. Keeping in mind the strength of the students, we always keep on trying to enhance the quality of the students by molding modern innovative teaching-learning techniques.


In the light of current policies of the Government of Assam, Cachar College is giving utmost efforts to enhance its brand value in the realm of higher education. ‘Reboot Cachar College’ is the tag line for the institution. In its journey towards a balanced mix of equity and efficiency support of the stakeholders is of critical importance.


I urge upon the students, teachers, non-teaching staff, guardians and civil society to extend their cooperation towards this prestigious public institution of higher learning.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
