Gauhati University was established on 26th January 1948. It was also in the year 1948 that the under graduate and post graduate commerce classes were started in this University. I. Com., B. Com., and two year Diploma course in Secretarial Practice were introduced in the under graduate classes. . I. Com. and B. Com. Classes were held in the New Arts Building of the Cotton College and Secretarial Practice Classes were held in the Don Bosco School Building. The then Vice Chancellor, K.K. Handique, took initiative to start the under graduate classes in the University as there was no arrangement to teach the newly introduced I. Com., B. Com. classes in the college (except in J.B. College, Jorhat).
