Department of Assamese

Department of Assamese

Brief History of the Department

On 21st July, 1969 along with the very establishment of Bijni College the Assamese Department also came into being. Initially the department offers Assamese as an MIL and Elective subjects in the 10+2 level. The first person to head of the department was late Birendra Giri Basumatary, who became the Vice-Principal of the college still his demise on 09.04.1994. In 1972 degree courses was introduced in the college and to meet the requirement of the teachers strength Mr. D. N. Medhi was appointed as second person of the department. As a good number of students were interested in the advanced study of Assamese language, literature and culture, the Honours Course (now Major course) was introduced in the year 1981. Presently the department has four Permanent and two part-time faculty members. It is pertinent to mention that a vacant post after the retirement of Mr. D. N. Medhi was converted to History department as per Gauhati Highcourt (Case No. WPC – 5980/ 2006) order and the G.B. resolution (No. 4(c) 4(d) held on 26.01.2012). On the other hand Dr. B. G. Basumatary joined as Principal of Bijni College on 31.01.12 and his post is presently filled up. For the greater interest of our students along with neighboring we introduced P.G. Course  in 2017 under Bodoland University. As per government direction, it was converted to Gauhati University But Again it was Converted to Bodoland University from 2020 as per the direction of Government. The department decides to invite guest lecturers for the P.G. Course for the sake of student’s interest. As the department has separate room with sufficient individual class room in P.G block, there is no separate budget of its own, the department has to face some difficulties to translate its visions in reality. However, with these limitations, there is very sincere effort for the progress and development of the department. With the help of the faculty members, in kinds and coins some developmental works have been done.
