Nabin Chandra College is situated in the heart of Badarpur, a small town in Karimganj district in south Assam. Badarpur, being located in the centre of Barak valley and also being the meeting point of Cachar, Hailakandi and Karimganj districts, enjoys an enviable location in this valley. Besides, it is the gateway to Barak valley and is well connected with the three lifelines of this valley, namely rail, road and river. The heart enchanting hills of Panchgram, the distant blue hills of Meghalaya, the ever green surroundings with trees in bloom, paddy fields, ponds and a busy national highway in front have lent an idyllic view and provided urban facilities at the same time. The College, renamed in 1971 after the late father of Basanta Kumar Das, a major donor, moved into its own building in 1974 and was brought under deficit system of grants-in-aid rules of Assam the following year.
The history of Nabin Chandra College unfolds the story of the deep commitment and untiring efforts of the founders who shared a vision of a College that would provide crucial access to Higher Education to the students coming mostly from the vast agrarian base around. The outline objective was the empowerment of the marginalized and the under-privileged through relevant higher education that serves as the basis of social, economic, and cultural development and is apt to remove social disparity. Truly as the founders visualized, the college did fulfill a significant role of its kind between Karimganj and Silchar two district towns 60 km. apart.
The beautiful and well-built Nabinchandra College that stands impressively in the heart of Badarpur town had its beginning in the late 1960s. The people of those years faced many a problem in sending their children for higher education to Karimganj or Silchar as there was no college between these two towns lying fifty-five kilometres apart. Distance, money, wastage of time and poor communication facilities were the chief hurdles which made them think about an alternative arrangement. The result was the unanimous decision of setting up a college at Badarpur. This noble idea soon acquired flesh and bones through the selfless and untiring efforts of the people of all walks of life in the form of a college in 1969. The sweat and blood of the then staff, students and the general public helped in laying a strong foundation and in nurturing the new born educational institution.
As the college had no campus of its own, the classes of Arts faculty were run in a rented building in a plot very close to the present site.The college was christened “Nabinchandra College” in 1971 after the late father of Basanta Kumar Das, a major donor. It was shifted to the present site in 1974 and was brought under the deficit system of grants-in-aid rules of the Assam government the following year. Since then it never looked back, but always marched ahead, crossing many a hurdle on the road to progress, achieving side by side the physical development of the college building , the campus, and the academic growth of the educational institution.
The College introduced Commerce at H.S. level in 1981 and at degree level in 1984, which continued till 1989. After a gap of Six years, the College re-introduced these programmes in full fledged manner. At present department of Commerce is a vivrant department with two honours courses viz 1. Accounting and Finance and 2. Business Management.

The College has also obtained permission to teach Physics and Chemisry at Degree level. The college has also applied to the Assam University for giving permission to introduce Botany and Zoology as Pass combination subjects of B.Sc. Course and Honours Courses in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Botany from the current session.

S. 1st Year Science Students was promoted to the 2nd Year with 100% success scoring outstanding marks. The College has recognised need to introduce Career oriented programmes at U.G.
