Reviews on Gurucharan College

More information


Gurucharan College, Silchar, abbreviated as G.C.College, was established on 15th July 1935 Originally the College was housed in a deserted bungalow of Mr. Promode Chandra Dutta at Rongpur on the bank of river Barak. Unfortunately, the riverbank erosion began to engulf the College premises and Gurucharan College was shifted temporarily to the campus of Silchar Normal School. However, this temporary phase of crises of accommodation was soon over and with the help of insistence from different quarters, it was able to acquire a vast area of about 7.1 acres within the land of Silchar Municipal area.

The College started its mission with a mere 15 students on its roll and today it boasts of having strength of almost 3000 students in its roll. Now, it is a full fledged institution of higher education up to the undergraduate level. It has attained a distinct identity of its own in the field of higher education in the eastern India.

Initially, the College had been affiliated to Calcutta University. In 1949, the College got affiliated to the Gauhati University, Assam. But with the establishment of the Assam University ( Central ), Silchar, G.C.College is now affiliated to it since 1994 and it is enlisted under 2(F) and 12 (B) by the University Grants Commission ( UGC) and offers Higher Secondary (10+2) and Three Year Degree Course ( 1+1+1) in Arts, Science and Commerce streams.
