About the College:

Rangia College is the premier institution of higher education on the
north bank of the Brahmaputra in the district of Kamrup. Founded
on August 5, 1963, the college has rendered pioneering services to
the community by catering to the needs of the vast and extensive
area inhabited predominantly by socially and economically
backward segments of the population.

       Rangia is a historically and strategically important place
occupying a prominent position in the history of pre-independent
as well as post independent Assam. Rangia is the nerve center of
trade and commerce in North Kamrup with a sound
communication network. The establishment of the college came
about rather late chiefly because of the economic backwardness of
the surrounding locality. However, the effort of establishing a
college got momentum by the late fifties as a result of untiring and
selfless dedication of a band of enthusiasts under the inspiring
leadership of Late Siddhinath Sarma, a giant among political heavy
weights of the freedom movement who was popularly known as the
Chanakya of Assam politics.

      During the forty years of its existence, the college has made
significant progress in fulfilment of its avowed objective of
imparting higher education in Arts, Science and Commerce to a
substantially large section of students belonging to socially and
economically backward groups of the area. The scenic and
picturesquely sylvan atmosphere of the site added glow and glory to
the institution in as much as it inspired a rare sense of urgency in
the college community as a whole. This resulted in a devoted
approach towards building the institution and the college was
brought under deficit system of grants-in-aid in September 1969 in
just six years time, which in itself is a record.
      Since its inception, the college has maintained a steady
growth. The Science stream was introduced in 1985 and was
brought under Govt. deficit grants-in-aid in 1992. It is pertinent to
mention here that the “Siddhinath Sarma Vigyan Bhavan” where
the science faculty is located was named after the legendary
freedom fighter and the chief architect of the college and the
Bhavan was formally declared open by the then Chief Minister of
Assam, late Hiteswar Saikia. Meanwhile, the college completed
twenty-five years of its existence in August 1988, and the Silver
Jubilee celebrations were organized in January, 1989 with great
enthusiasm.

     With the introduction of the commerce stream in 1996,
Rangia College is now a full-fledged three-stream college with lots of
promises to be fulfilled in the years to come.

      The history of forty years of Rangia College is a tale of
vicissitudes of multitudes. In the initial years of its establishment,
the college had to grow bit by bit in view of absence of outstanding
donors. Whatever shape and form the college could achieve at the
beginning was all due to humble contributions made by public in
general. It is worthwhile to mention that the destiny of the college
was guided at that crucial period by none other than Sri Birendra
Nath Bordoloi, the illustrious son of the illustrious father, the
Bharat Ratna Late Gopinath Bordoloi, the first Chief Minister of
post independent Assam. Under his stewardship as principal for
long 17 years, the college made noteworthy progress both in terms
of physical development and academic achievements.

      We are aware that the problems of and the challenges before
higher educational institutes like ours are many and varied. We
have a firm determination to cope up to these manfully
notwithstanding the constraints-infrastructural and environmental.
We have a vision of turning this institution of semi- urban base
into a centre of excellence in a decade‟s time by elevating its
academic status through introduction of career- oriented courses
and also opening PG courses in select subjects. We also look
forward to augmenting its infrastuctural base with amenities like
an Auditorium, a mini sports complex and hostel accommodation
for boys and girls.

limited extent depending upon the satisfaction of the authorities
concerned.
        With the thrust area of the college curriculum as designed by the
Gauhati University mainly centered on generation and transmission of
knowledge, the onus of fulfilling the social responsibility like creating

is left to the extension education activities of the college.

Justification:
1)The changing face of the public address system with modern
amenities( LCD projector) is turn to be          primary need. The
departmental seminar given by the Major students can make best
use of it.
2)Knowledge stored in a hard disk (CD,DVD) with a public display
unit ( TV) may change a conventional class room into a interesting
class room.
3) Refrigerator is a part of few third year Major experiments where
different temperature of different liquid is necessary.
4) The frequent cut down of electricity supplied by the Assam State
Electricity Board is a common fact. A sub urban area like Rangia is
worst hit. Specially during practical examination students have to
face utmost uncertainty. The Generator can make the students
confident.
5) Data base of       students and Teachers are important for Past-
Present-Future coordination. To start with department of Physics
will go for the data base for the students of Physics and hope that
other departments will cooperate.

Justification:
1) Students are more interested in digital electronics and
Computer networking. A separate electronic Laboratory will greatly
help the students to grow interest in this field.
2)There is an argent need to update the laboratories as the syllabus
for the Physics practical includes important experiments. The listed
equipments are considered essential.
3)Some of the equipments are costly. The students have to wait
long for equipment due to financial constrain.
4) Sustainable maintenance is a part of a science laboratory. Store
under lock and key is also necessary in some cases. A good
company Almirah (Godraj) is therefore proposed.
