College Profile


(NAAC Accredited: 3rd cycle, “A” Grade)

The only nerve centre of higher education in the greater Hajo area, Suren Das College, was established on 29th August, 1979. Beginning with only a few students, it was formerly known as Hajo Anchalik College, and was housed in the premises of Hajo S.B.S.K.R. Higher Secondary School, Hajo.

The college is the outcome of the dream and untiring efforts of a group of benevolent persons and educationists of Hajo area. Not only that, the mass participation to the cause can be seen in the immense contribution made by various organizations to the college. Organisations such as the No.1 Hajo Gaon Panchayat SamabaySamiti have been making substantial contributions towards the growth and development of the college ever since its inception. The two storied science building of the college is a kind donation of this SamabaySamiti.

The family of Late Suren Das (20 Feb, 1925-18 March, 1982), a noble man of philanthropic outlook, donated the existing two-storied Arts building of the College on the land relinquished in favour of the College by the DhoparguriSatra authority. As a mark of respect to their contributions, and in order to commemorate Late Suren Das, the Governing Body of the College decided to rename the College as Suren Das College in 1985. The College came under deficit grants-in-aid system w.e.f. 01-01-1987 and has been permanently affiliated to Gauhati University w.e.f. 1994 and is registered under 2(F) and 12(B) of the UGC Act 1956 w.e.f. 1994-95.
