About College

Bhawanipur Anchalik College is one of the nerve centers of higher education in the vast rural area of Bhawanipur, Assam. In 1982, this premier institute of higher education was initially started on the premises of Bhawanipur Primary Health Centre. The establishment of Bhawanipur Anchalik College was possible mainly due to the contributions and hard work of the people of Bhawanipur and its adjoining areas. The college was shifted to its present site in 1984. The institution is located on the western side of National Highway No. 27 (East-West Highway), 2 kilometers from Bhawanipur Chowk Bazar and 4 kilometers from Sarupeta Railway Station. Bhawanipur Anchalik College was affiliated with the University of Gauhati in 1991 and was brought under the deficit grants-in-aid system of the state government in 1996. The college is being managed by a Governing Body (GB) constituted under the management rules of the Department of Higher Education, Government of Assam, India. Bhawanipur Anchalik College has been included in the 2(f) and 12(B) Registration Act of the UGC in January 2006. The serene atmosphere, calm green surroundings, water reservoir in the form of a fishery, and abled administration are conducive to academic pursuits. To prepare students to meet the challenges of the modern world and inculcate the spirit of leadership in different avenues have all along been the guiding principles of the college. The college has been maintaining a good record of performances in the council and university examinations.

In 2012, the Governing Body, with thorough scrutiny of the demands of the locality, planned to apply for permission from the University of Gauhati to begin the Commerce Stream. As per the planning, an application was submitted, and the university, after official inspection, granted permission to open commerce stream by its official Memo No. GU/AFF/2012/2315-18, Dated 11- 06 -12. Thus, the college has made proper provision of commerce education since 2013 for the students of the greater Bhawanipur area in particular and Assam, India, in general. Once again, the greater Bhawanipur area found itself lacking in science education options. Responding to this need, the college authorities initiated the process for the addition of another stream. After the persistent efforts of the Governing Body of the college, Bhawanipur Anchalik College received approval and post-sanctions to introduce the science stream through the Assam Government's orders AHE,90/2022/11, dated 08-09-2022, and PC/HE/Misc.117/2018/167, dated 15/10/2022. Offering three streams, the college is now equipped to offer multidisciplinary courses along with the traditional stream-based programs, aligning with the objectives outlined in the National Education Policy, 2020.
