Gurucharan College, established on 15th July, 1935 is recognised as one of the premier institutions in the field of Collegiate education. It has carved out a distinct identity of its own in the field of higher education in the eastern part of India. The well-acclaimed reputation of the college stands not on its vast area of land, buildings constructed on it or on its enrolment strength but on its enriched academic & intellectual legacy built up during the time-span of 79 years of its life at the cost of effort and sacrifices of a batch of dedicated personalities who left no stone unturned to erect this huge edifice of higher education in this Barak Valley. Today, this institution of potential excellence is proud to have a large number of alumni who have established themselves in different professions and vocations of life in India and abroad.


Initially the college was housed in a Bungalow of one Late Promode Chandra Datta at Rongpur on the bank of the river Barak. When the river bank erosion began to swallow the college premises, it was shifted temporarily to the campus of Silchar Normal School. At that time, classes were held in the Morning shift. However, this temporary phase of crisis of accommodation was soon over. Guru Charan College began to receive generous help and assistance from different quarters and ultimately it was able to acquire permanent space in its present state of location.


In fact, Gurucharan College came into being on account of the far-sighted vision of Late Bishnu Charan Dey Purkayastha of the Department of Education, Assam. To give a shape to his vision of establishing a college here at Silchar, he got the support of Late Kiron Sashi Nag, the widow of Late Guru Charan Nag, who came forward with a generous donation of Rs. 10,000/- in 1934 for the establishment of the college. The college acquired its name after Kiron Sashi Nag’s husband Gurucharan and special emphasis was put on women education. This college was fortunate enough to have Arun Kumar Chanda, Bar-at-law and the son of Late Kamini Kumar Chanda as the founder Principal. Initially, the college had been affiliated to the Calcutta University. In 1949, the college was affiliated to the Gauhati University. With the establishment of the Assam University (Central) at Silchar, in 1994 Gurucharan College is now affiliated to the Assam University. Today, the college boasts of having a student enroment of almost 4000 in Arts, Science, and Commerce stream taking into account H.S. and Degree students.
