Dakshin Kamrup College

Dakshin Kamrup College is so named because it is the fruit of the untiring and relentless efforts of the people of Dakshin Kamrup area. Dakshin Kamrup, as the name indicates, is a vast area of Kamrup District stretching over hundred and fifty miles along the southern bank of the mighty Brahmaputra. The countryside has a rich cultural heritage. The literary level is moderate. Palasbari, famous for timber and Muga industry, is its prime trade centre. But this place has lost its old glory due to devastating erosion caused by the Brahmaputra. Educationists, social workers, student, and a cross-section of the public had long felt the need for a centre of higher education in this vast area. The college has fulfilled the long cherished hope and aspirations of the people of Dakshin Kamrup.
