History of B.H.B. College

Established on the 1st of July 1971, Bhawanipur Hastinapur Bijni (B.H.B) College, as an institution of higher learning at Sarupeta affiliated to Gauhati University, serves the socially and economically backward people of the vast area well. It is ideally located among three revenue mouzas/tehsils, as indicated by the very name of the College, under Bajali Sub-division of Barpeta District. B.H.B. College is the oldest institution in 41, Bhawanipur Legislative Assembly Constituency, a segment of Kokrajhar Parliamentary Constituency of Assam which is a reserved seat for scheduled tribes.

The indomitable will and spirit of the people and their ardent needs of higher education combined with their sheer persistence paid dividends as their dream turned into reality with the establishment of the college. The prime purpose of the establishment of the college was to have an institution at close quarters that could help them have ready access to higher learning. These people, socially and economically backward, could not send their children to far off places for higher education money being the constraint. The vision of the college includes providing education to students belonging to SC/ST/OBC and to minority communities. The thrust is also on providing education to girl students who outnumber the boys in the institution both quantitatively and qualitatively. One of the core objectives in establishing the college was to give full access to higher education for women.

The college is affiliated to the University of Gauhati and has also been included under Section 2(f) of the UGC Act 1956. The college, with its band of dedicated teachers excels in imparting quality education to students and at the same time instilling in them the moral and ethical values necessary for living in harmony with others. The college is a medley of students belonging to different ethnic groups living in perfect harmony with each other. The college spares no effort to provide with them the wherewithal both academically and morally to face the challenges of life that life in the 21st century has thrown in and also to turn them into model citizens full of character and nationalistic feelings. Competitions and cultural events which form the academic life of the students help them immensely to show case their innate talent and also to realize their tremendous potential through participation in all these events.
