DEPARTMENT AT A GLANCE

The Department of Chemistry was inaugurated in the 2023-24 academic session, following the introduction of the Science Stream as an additional stream in the provincialised Salbari College. This initiative was undertaken by the Government of Assam, guided by the Hon’ble Chief Minister: Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma and Hon’ble Education Minister: Dr. Ranoj Pegu. Currently, the department adheres to the syllabus of four-year undergraduate program (FYUGP) as prescribed by Bodoland University, in line with the National Education Policy (NEP-2020).
