Women's College is entwined with the history of Women education in undivided Cachar district after independence. Along with the rest of the country, the independence and partition of India brought a dramatic upheaval in political, social and economic life of Barak Valley - a region still not easily accessible. The security and comfort of the agrarian life-style got disturbed and women had to come out to shoulder equal responsibility of earning a living. To acquire both employability and intellectual capability, women needed to be educated and two existing colleges - Gurucharan College (1935) and Cachar College (1960) could not bear the influx of so many aspiring minds. Many intellectuals and social workers of that period thus felt a need to open a college exclusively to cater for the higher education needs of the women.
