About the College


Government Model College, Borkhola (GMCB) was set up in the year 2020 in Cachar district under the Assam Government’s initiative to set up 15 model colleges in rural areas in the State with financial assistance from Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan’s (RUSA-1.0). The college provides quality Higher education to the students of rural areas of Borkhola. Out of the total 15 model colleges to be set up, nine were planned exclusively for women students and the other six were to be set up as co-educational colleges. Government Model College, Borkhola is one of those six co-educational colleges. Like other Model colleges, GMCB too was set up at the cost of Rs. 9.00 Crores and was inaugurated in the digital mode by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi Ji on 3rd February, 2019. It became functional with its first batch of UG batch from the 2020-2021 academic session. Unlike other state colleges set up and provincialized by the state Government, GMCB, like other newly created Model colleges of the state, is set up and directly run by the State Government.
