Department of Assamesee at a glance

Salbari College, Salbari, was established on 14th of November in 1983 by the conscious educationists and guardians of the locality with a few publication donations amidst their poor socio-economic conditions prevailing at that time. They took the bold step of starting the first ever Higher Education Institute of the area for the benefits of the poor aspiring students of greater Salbari area. They named it ‘Salbari College’ with a view to establish the name of Salbari in the educational map of Assam through its contribution to the educational field. The college opened undergraduate courses in 1986 and was affiliated to Gauhati University. It was then bifurcated into two separate entitles in 1997. In the same year, the one which retained the nomenclature ‘SALBARI COLLEGE’ was shifted to its own permanent campus. Since then, the college has been running undergraduate courses under Gauhati University and presently as per provision under section 5(1) & 5(2) of bodoland University Act, 2009 and Govt. underNo. AHE, 156/2020/19 dated 2ndJuly 2020 and the dicision of the executive Council vide resolution No. 18 dated 29/04/2022the Salbari College, Salbari Baksa BTC(Assam) has been accorded Subject Affiliation under Bodoland University.
The exquisite campus of Salbari College is spread over 28 bighass and 17 lessas of land. The College has earned a remarkable reputation in teaching Humanities over the past few years. It was registered under Section 2 (f) and 12 (B) of UGC Act, 1956 vide notification No. 8-371/2006 (CP) and obtained Govt. concurrence and certificate by ASHE (All India Survey of Higher Education).
The College has gloriously completed 3 decades since its foundation and has developed computing facility, Internet connectivity, a dedicated power supply system and a relatively small but rich library housing a gigantic collection of books and journals.
The college was brought under the purview of provincialization in 2013 under the ‘The Assam Venture Educational Institution Provincialization (provincialization of Services) Act, 2011 and 2012 as amended.
The college is located at Salbari opposite to SDO (C) office which is in the heart of Salbari Sub-Division in the District of Baksa (Erstwhile Barpeta) in Bodoland Territorial Regions of Assam and at the feet of world famous heritage site Manas National Park. The very location belongs to TSP (Tribal Sub Plan) area. It is about 10km. south from the IndoBhutan Border and 25kms to the North from the No. 31 National Highway. The college is well connected by public transport.

The college came under deficit Grants-in-aid (G.I.A.) with effect from 01-01-2009 and it is provincialized under state government in 2013.


The Department of Assamese was established at the very establishment of the college i.e. in 1983.
