The department of Zoology was established in 1963 with the initiative of founder principal Late S. K. Sen, an eminent educationist. At the beginning there were 23 students in the enrollment of the first batch. The ‘Honours Course’in Zoology was introduced in the session 1980-81. This course was later renamed as ‘Major Course’ when the three years Degree Course was introduced in the +2 pattern (part I + part II). Again the pattern of this course was changed into the pattern of TDC (1+1+1) in 2003 by Gauhati University in accordance with the recommendation of UGC. Semester system was introduced by Gauhati University in 2011.
