Jagiroad College - JC

Established on 8th August, 1979, Jagiroad College (formerly known as Kapili Anchalik College) is located at Jagiroad, a gradually developing semi-urban conglomeration of Morigaon district of Assam, at a distance of barely one hundred meters from the National Highway 37. The serene campus, spread over a spacious area of twenty-five bighas of land, is nestled by the picturesque Sonaikuchi Hill. Culturally it lies very close to Na-Khola—the abode of the Prince Regent of the ancient Kingdom of the Tiwas –one of the   tribes of the state endowed with its distinctive indigenous life-world. Jagiroad College was established by a group of foresighted and committed social-workers led by Nandalal Upadhaya who passed away lately.  Late Prabin Kumar Barthakur(Lal) and many other were actively associated with the establishment and  evolution of Jagiroad College during its early years . The Dry Fish Merchants’ Association, Sitajakhala Dugdha Unnayan Samabai Samiti, Hindustan Paper Corporation and Assam Spun Silk Mill  of Jagiroad   also  offered financial and infrastructural assistance to the College. Prof. Mahendra Ahom, the founder Principal, played a pivotal role for seventeen years in the development of the College through his enthusiasm, vigorous spirit and generous approach.  Jagiroad College    was able to attract students from the surrounding rural hinterlands who were mostly   “first generation” learners and belonged to socio-economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities primarily because of   his dynamic leadership.  Prof. Ahom laid the foundation of academic and infrastructural blueprint of the College while inspiring the teachers to promote the cherished values of inclusiveness and equity without losing sight of qualitative parameters. He was adept in introducing innovative teaching-learning mechanisms like tutorials for Higher Secondary level learners with a focus on improvement of reading and writing skills. During his tenure both the Arts and Science Streams of the College were brought under the “deficit-grant-in-aid” system of Government of Assam following affiliation of its programmes and courses by the Gauhati University and it became eligible for developmental grants under sections 2(f) and 12(b) of the UGC Act 1956. A host of young and talented teachers from different parts of the state joined Jagiroad College due to Prof. Ahom’s stress on teacher quality and transparent recruitment policy. Utpalmoni Phukan, the present Vice Principal of the College, served as the Principal-in-Charge for six years in two phases in the evolution of the College. Dr. Altafur Rahman, the present President of the Governing Body, served as the Principal for eight years between 2000 and 2008. During Dr. Rahman’s tenure the College was accreditated and assessed by the NAAC and career oriented professional programmes like MTM and PGDCA (under Gauhati University), distance education programmes under IGNOU, tie-up with NBIRT for promotion of entrepreneurship were started. He also worked towards further expansion of infrastructural facilities like construction of hostels, expansion of library and computer centre. During Dr. Rahman’s tenure, the College also celebrated its Silver Jubilee celebrations in 2005 with enthusiasm and gaiety with active coordination of a large number of its alumni. The same year the College came under the ambit of Assam College Employees (Provincialisation) Act, 2005. Dr. Bhaben Chandra Neog, the present Principal of the College, has undertaken some significant measures and steps to begin new programmes and courses like Bachelor in Commerce (B.Com. - Major and General), Advanced Diploma in Construction Works (ADCW) etc. He has also set an agenda for adding state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities. The process of digitalization of College class rooms has started under his initiative and three of which have already been upgraded as digital class rooms with sophisticated interactive digital display boards with ceiling mounted projectors. A  Digital Language Lab is being established in the College which will be immensely beneficial for the learners of the College. Solar power plant installed in the College has been another significant step undertaken by the incumbent Principal to meet the shortage of power supply for its academic and other day-to-day activities. Apart from his busy schedule he has also been engaging himself in research activities in Applied Mathematics and presented his research papers in different National and International Conferences in India and also in countries like China, Malaysia, America and published many research papers in journals of National and International repute. Jagiroad College since its early days has been in the forefront of promoting inclusiveness and equity, adopting learner-friendly teaching-learning mechanisms, academic exchanges, and organizing seminars and conferences. In the past it successfully organized annual/biennial sessions of NEIHA and NEIGS apart from having regular calendar of seminars by the Seminar Forum and holding State and National level seminars.  Dr. Subhash Saha, a faculty of the History department, carved a niche for himself as a multifaceted scholar-poet- social activist and was engaged in Post Doctoral research till his untimely demise in 1994. Prof. Moloya Goswami, present HOD of the Education Department, bagged the  Best Actress Award of the 37th National Film Awards in 1992 for her stellar role in Jahnu Barua directed movie “Firingoti ( A Spark).”  She has also been nominated thrice as a member of the prestigious Jury for the National Film Awards. Prof. Tulshi Bordoloi, a faculty of the History Department and a former President of the Tiwa Mathonlai Tokhra (Tiwa Sahitya Sabha), has acted as a key resource person dedicated to the cause of cultural and literary studies of the Tiwas.  Teachers of the College have also been engaged in Major and Minor research projects funded by the DST, UGC etc. besides being awarded PhD and MPhil degrees from universities of repute and  Institute  of  National Importance. A section of the teachers are also actively engaged in local literary, cultural and sports organizations besides offering assistance and consultancy to media and community based organizations. The non-teaching staff too are sincere and committed in their services, IT savvy and actively engaged in furtherance of the vision of the College. With its nearly eighteen hundred students—a large segment of who still  belongs to socio-economically disadvantaged communities,  a reasonably high rate of gender parity, a pleasant and peaceful teaching-learning ambience, a committed teaching staff –some  of whom have earned academic and other laurels, a supportive alumni— many of whom have successfully shaped and carved out their careers, excellent infrastructural facilities, a wide array of full time academic programmes and courses ranging from Higher Secondary to Master in Tourism Management , excellent support for  affordable and broad-based  Distance Education under IGNOU convergence scheme and the IDOL of Gauhati University, a well stacked and updated library with nearly thirty thousand books, varied schemes of scholarships for learners, seminars and conferences, grievance redressal mechanism, wide range of CCA activities—Jagiraod College is uniquely poised to scale higher  in the contours of  Higher Education map of  Assam.
