proposal to set up a college to impart general higher education to the
people residing in the newly urbanized southern most part of the town was
mooted by some eminent educationists in the early part of 1970. A
committee of some leading citizens was formed to start the college with
the name New Silchar College in nearby Netaji Girls’ High School from the
academic session of 1971.
College has set up before it, twin objectives-to provide the society and
the nation with quality higher education; and to contribute to the
physical, intellectual, aesthetic and moral growth of the youths with a
sense of commitment towards building a better tomorrow. The ultimate goal
of the college is to make the institution a centre of excellence in the
field of higher education.
Surrounded mostly by suburbs, the College is situated in
New Silchar area about 2 Km. away from the main centre of the city, on
the Silchar-Aizawl National Highway. All types of vehicles ply on the road
and there is no problem to reach the college within a few minutes from any
part of the city.
