Silapathar College, established in the year 1979, was brought under the deficit system of grant-in-aid in 1992. Having permanently affiliated to the Dibrugarh University, the college got registered under 2(f) and 12(b) of UGC Act 1956. A great feat indeed for a rural college like Silapathar College! The institution was then subsequently provincialised by the Government of Assam.
The college underwent through a series of SWOT analysis and finally volunteered to be assessed by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). It rigorously prepared draft report basing basically on honest acceptance of weaknesses and submitted a Self-Study Report to the Council. Accordingly, a Peer Team consisting of Prof (Mrs.) Kerma S. Lyndoh, former Vice¬Chancellor, NEHU, Shillong, Meghalaya as Chairperson, Dr. (Mrs.) Manju Mitra, Principal, Govt. PG & Commerce and Arts College, Bilaspur, Chhatisgarh as Member and Dr. U. Subbarao, former Director (Student Services), Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh as Member-Coordinator visited the college on 15th & 16th December, 2004.
NAAC accredited and awarded Grade "B" to Silapathar College on 28`" February, 2005! It was one of the greatest achievements of the college since inception.
The Peer Team had put forward 11 (eleven) numbers of suggestions for overall improvement of the college. Though belated by 2 (two) years, this institution has kept the expectations of the Peer Team. It has implemented all the 11 (eleven) suggestions and set benchmark for steady improvement. Taking cue from the best practices followed by some of the best institutions, Silapathar College has not only duplicated these practices but also internalized quite a few of them. It is in fact, a great achievement for our college.
