List of Government Model College in BTR/Bodoland 2023: The Assam government is setting up three government model colleges simultaneously at Baksa, Udalguri, and Chirang districts of BTR, Assam.
There are three upcoming govt model colleges in Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR). Which are the three districts of BTR will get the govt model college? Since Kokrajhar district already has the Kokrajhar govt college, Kokrajhar is excluded from the list. The other three areas of BTC, namely, Chirang, Baksa, and Udalguri, will get the three new model colleges.
What is Model College in Assam?
The Government of India (GOI) has launched a scheme, “Scheme for Financing New Model Colleges in Educationally Backward Districts (EBDs).” Through this EBDs scheme, the state government here, the Govt of Assam (GOA), will be provided financial assistance in constructing the model colleges in the state and running the same. The location of such a model college will be a remote and underdeveloped area where the reach of a good education is rare, and the enrolment ratio is less.
This EBDs scheme aims to provide higher education up to degree courses (UG), i.e., it’s also called model degree college. Though the aim was to offer degree courses, the government plans to introduce post-graduate courses (PG) and skill development courses per the National Educational Policy 2020 (NEP 2022).

There are many schools, colleges, universities, and ITIs where students can pursue their studies. Kokrajhar has already got Kokrajhar govt college, so the Assam govt has not included Kokrajhar in their plan. Explore Education in Kokrajhar district.
