About Us

     Jogananda Deva Satradhikar Goswami (JDSG) College, Bokakhat is one of the prominent institutions 

     of higher education in the district of Golaghat. Situated in a beautiful natural ambience by the side of 

     N.H. 37, in the close vicinity of the Kaziranga National Park-the World Heritage Site, the college has 

     been playing a pivotal role in educating rural youths and in contributing towards creating a good 

     citizenry in the greater Bokakhat sub-divisional area ever since its establishment in 1964. The 

     College, recognized by the UGC under relevant sections of the UGC Act, also happens to be the last 

     one in the western part among the affiliated colleges under Dibrugarh University. It has a large 

     feeding area. Students primarily from the deprived and denied sections of the society generally 

     seek admission in the college. Bulk of the feeding areas is flood-affected, rural and socio-

     economically backward. Amidst such a background, the college has completed 54 years of its 

     glorious existence in spite of all the stated odds and limitations. The college covers an area of 

     17.07 acres/68,299.2 sq. mts (51 bighas) of land with good infrastructure and learning resources.

     Set up with the vision of ‘Education for Social Justice and Peace’, the college has been sincere and 

     devout in its approach to contribute towards the social, moral, economic, literary and cultural 

     upliftment of the youths of the area as was visualized by the founders of the college. The college 

     imparts education in the undergraduate programmes under the Dibrugarh University in Arts 

     and Commerce streams. These two streams were brought under the then deficit system of grants in 

     aid in the years 1975 and 1988 respectively. In 2005 like many other erstwhile deficit- grants-in-

     aid colleges of Assam, the college was also declared provincialised under an Act passed in this regard 

     by the Government of Assam.

                               The college provides a healthy meeting ground to students belonging to different 

     social sections, most of them being the SCs, STs, TGLs and OBC/MOBC and minority communities.  

    The college has modest infrastructure and learning resources including a Digital Classroom, a 

    Video Conferencing Room, a computer lab, a good library, modern education lab, etc. More ICT 

    enabled rooms are being planned in the near future. The college library is good in its resources 

    including e-resources. There is also a Network Resource Centre in the library. In order to 

    accommodate students from distant areas the college possesses two hostels-one each for boys and 

    girls. The college is manned by experienced and trained faculty and supporting office staff.

                                Keeping in view the present trend of modern education as well as the challenge of 

    time, endeavours have been made to start a number of job oriented courses as is also desired by 

    the proposed Choice Based Credit System from next academic session by the Dibrugarh University 

    after a mandate by the University Grants Commission. As stated, our vision is ‘’Education for justice 

    and peace.” We propose to direct all our future academic and other allied activities to fulfil this vision 

    that might help in the nation building process. Our emphasis will always be on imparting 

    quality education to our students with the available resources with us.
