Message from Principal

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 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 been catering to 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 changes. Cachar College has tried to situate itself in the changing paradigm accordingly. The greatest challenge in the higher education sector is striking the right balance between quantity and quality. We have to keep equally alert tab on excellence and extension of higher education. 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 quality.
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.
