Short History & profile of the college

Karmashree Hiteswar Saikia College is one of the premier colleges located at Panjabari Road, Sixmile, Guwahati, Kamrup Metro District of Assam. With the shifting of the capital of Assam from Shillong to Dispur in 1973, the city of Guwahati witnessed tremendous growth of population and expansion. But the facilities for higher education still remained virtually limited as the existing colleges in the city failed to cater the need to accommodate a proportionately large number of students and as a result, many students found their doors closed to their aspirations of getting higher education.

The realization of this fact and the deep understanding of the situation convinced some prominent educationists and social activists about the prospects of founding a college in the South-Eastern part of the Guwahati city which is adjacent to the Assam-Meghalaya inter-state border. And subsequently, the college was established as City College in 19th September, 1988 at the O.B.C. Complex Dispur with the bold and zealous initiative of Late Tholok Gogoi, with the purpose of facilitating higher education for the downtrodden and the have-nots of the society. Late Tholok Gogoi, who was the founder secretary of the college, was the General Secretary of the All Assam Other Backward Classes Association, the Mantri of the The Assam Rastrabhasha Prachar Samiti and a devoted social worker all through his life.

But Tholok Gogoi’s dream-child, the City College was having hard times due to dire financial crisis and constrains. It somehow moved along and could make its bare existence till 1992 without the basic infrastructure of land and building. Then like a savior a man behind the scene appeared, and he was none other than Late Hiteswar Saikia, the then Chief-Minister of Assam. A man of the masses, Late Saikia was a versatile person and being and educationist himself in his early career as the Vice-Principal of Gargaon college, could realize the necessity of establishing a college in the south-eastern part of Guwahati city. So, he promptly allotted the present plot of land to the college at Sixmile, Panjabari Road, during his tenure as the Chief-Minister of Assam; and the college was shifted to this location on 29th Feb.1996

Subsequently a new Governing body was formed under the Presidentship of Dr. Hemo Prava Saikia, an educationist and former Cabinet Minister of Assam. Under her able guidance and leadership, the college has been progressing fast. And as a mark of gratitude to Late Karmashree Hiteswar Saikia for the landmark contribution towards the growth of the college, the City College was renamed as Karmashree Hiteswar Saikia College in a public meeting held on 4th Jan, 2004 in presence of eminent members of civil society, educationists, social-workers, teachers, and students.

The college had been running both Higher Secondary and B.A. classes. However, in the year 2000 the Karmashree Hiteswar Saikia College was bifurcated and the Higher Secondary section was separated and the classes are being conducted in the Karmashree Hiteswar Saikia Secondary School with its own staff and buildings since then.

While the college has been marching with glory and pride, the family of Late Uma Charan Bania, Former Joint Commissioner, Sales Tax & Member APSC, came forward with the proposal of building a state-of-art Library in his memory. On 8th Jan. 2011, the college had a well-equipped modern library i.e. Uma Charan Bania Memorial Library and Education Centre named after him.

The college got its Centrally Air Conditioned Auditorium with about Four hundred fifty seat capacity on 6th May, 2016 from Planning and Development Department, Govt. of Assam

Also, on 9th Feb. 2019, the family members of Late Kumud Ch. Deka, who was a retired police officer, donated a Memorial Open Stage to the college in his fond memory.

The college has been dedicatedly rendering service in imparting higher education at UG level. Due to the active part in disseminating knowledge Gauhati University extended permanent affiliation in the year 2010 for the ongoing Arts courses. The college obtained recognition under Section 2(f) & 12(B) of the UGC Act,1956 in 22ndFebruary, 2013. The Arts Stream of the college was provincialized in 3rdJune, 2014 under the Provincialization Act by Govt. of Assam (w.e.f. 14thAugust, 2013). The Commerce Stream of the college is run by the management in a self-financed mode, which was started from August, 2013, after a huge demand from the public. The college is thus a fast growing Co-educational institution with Arts and Commerce Streams, located at an ideal place near Sixmile on the Panjabari Road, Guwahati-22. The atmosphere here is quiet, presenting a serene educational environment.
