In the year 1967 it was taken over by the Govt. of Assam and since then the college has never looked back. Within a few years the college got its own building which provides accommodation for class rooms, office room, department staff rooms, auditorium, library etc. Besides, there are two Girls’ Hostels and one Boys’ hostel. There are 23 quarters for teachers and 8 quarters for non-teaching staff in addition to one full furnished official residence for Principal.

The emblem of the College is the Jambili Athon, which is also the cultural sysmbol of the Karbis. The Jambili Athon is an artifact , made from wood of Bengvoi Tree ( Holarrhina antidysenterica), and on the side of the main stem are four branches. On the main stem, there is the Vojaru (Drongo bird) and on the side branches are perched by different kinds of birds. In addition , the Jambili Athon is studded by Sobai (Couries). According to tradition the Vojaru stands for the Karbi King and the other species of birds perched on the side branches symbolize the representatives from the traditional territorial divisions of the Karbi Kingdom. In short, the Jambili Athon reflects the social pattern of the Karbis. It is the art gallery of the Karbi Society. At the background is the hill which symbolizes the hilly life of the local people. Just below the Jambili Athon is the lighted lamp which symbolizes the light of knowledge that dispels darkness and ignorance. The whole symbol is encircled by the motto and name of the College. Just below the name of the college is the year of establishment. This emblem is selected for the college since the institution is situated in Karbi Anglong (Karbi Hills), a district carved out and named after the Karbi Tribe.
