Our History

Dimoria College is the brainchild of a group of highly motivated social entrepreneurs who in the seventies dreamt of bringing the gospel of higher education to this relatively backward tribal belt area of Dimoria. Led by the indomitable zeal of patrons of learning like late Padmakanta Deka (Founder President), late Santa Ram Deka (Founder Secretary), late Prasanna Deka, Late Gopinath Sarma, late Krishna Kanta Bhuyan, the people of Dimoria started a public campaign for the establishment of a College. Their efforts were augmented by donation and cooperation from all sections of local society ranging from rich businessmen like Omkarlal Agarawala to humble thelawalas and firewood sellers.

The college was inaugurated on 29th August, 1979 in a small classroom at Khetri High School with fifty seven students and three teachers. Late Pandit Binanda Chandra Barman was the founder Principal (1979-80) followed by Sri Hari Prasad Medhi (1980 - March, 1981). Sri Ram Charan Bharali assumed the stewardship of the College on 14th April, 1981 and retired on 31/12/2010.

Arts Stream of the college was brought under deficit grants-in-aid system on 1st February, 1986. This development encouraged the college to open Science Stream in H.S. level in the year 1987. B.Sc. Course was started in 1992 and the Stream got a fillip with the inauguration of the Ambedkar Science Block by the then Hon’ble Vice-President of India, Sri K. R. Narayanan. The Science Stream was brought under deficit grants-in-aid system in 1996.

Always striving for the goals of greater excellence, the college opened Post-Graduate Classes in Assamese, Political Science and Economics in 1992. Famous Scholars like Prof. VV Rao & Sahityacharya Prof. Golak Ch. Goswami used to take P.G classes in the early years and help and encourage the college with their invaluable advice and wisdom. A new feather was added to the P.G wing in 2004 with the introduction of a totally unique and emerging Science Course in Eco-Restoration. In 2008, Dimoria College earned the rare distinction of signing a memorandum of understanding with Brandenburg Technical University, Cottbus, Germany on mutual exchange of students and faculty and evaluation of courses of study along with mutual recognition of Eco-restoration students’ performance in Dimoria College. It was followed by the introduction of a P.G Course in Environment Management in the year 2008.

Apart from these, several U.G.C. sponsored Vocational Courses along with Distance Education Programme under the IGNOU have also been introduced. In recognition of the values and social orientation of the College, U.G. C. has provided it with a Centre for Ambedkar Studies with the objective of spreading the teachings and philosophy of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.

In addition to the hard work and perseverance of the college community, we are blessed to have among our patrons, a great intellectual figure like former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh who has visited the college on more than one occasion and extended his helping hand in the completion of various projects of the college. Being the only rural Post Graduate Institution in Assam, Dimoria College was awarded ‘A’ Grade by NAAC in recognition of its role as a harbinger of social change through the instrument of higher education. The year 2010 saw our college being placed in the coveted position of a College with Potential for Excellence by the UGC whereby it has earned the highly cherished membership of a select club of 149 colleges out of more than 6000 colleges throughout India under UGC’s recognition. The august arrival of Former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam to our college on 6th February, 2010 to motivate our students in the path of nation building was the jewel on the crown of the above achievements. Thus from a very humble beginning in 1979 the college has matured itself into a full fledged centre for learning and excellence.

The present day college has a sprawling campus of more than twenty four bighas of land including built up areas and a spacious playground. Facilities include a well stocked modern library with photocopying and Internet facility, Departmental Libraries, well equipped laboratories, five P.G. Departments, a Computer Science cum IT Department, a Language Laboratory, a Canteen for students, teachers & non-teaching staff, five separate hostels for boys and girls together with a multipurpose Auditorium complex. The college has completed many minor and major research projects and continuing several others sponsored by the UGC. Presently more than one hundred forty teaching & non-teaching staff is working in the college for promotion of teaching, learning, evaluation, innovation, research and extension services for the greater goal of social upliftment.

“If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.”
