Established on 8th August, 1979, Jagiroad College (formerly known as Kapili Anchalik College) is located at Jagiroad, a gradually developing semi-urban conglomeration of Morigaon district of Assam, at a distance of barely one hundred meters from the National Highway 37. The serene campus, spread over a spacious area of twenty-five bighas of land, is nestled by the picturesque Sonaikuchi Hill. Culturally it lies very close to Na-Khola—the abode of the Prince Regent of the ancient Kingdom of the Tiwas –one of the tribes of the state endowed with its distinctive indigenous life-world.
Jagiroad College was established by a group of foresighted and committed social-workers led by Nandalal Upadhaya who passed away lately. Late Prabin Kumar Barthakur(Lal) and many other were actively associated with the establishment and evolution of Jagiroad College during its early years . The Dry Fish Merchants’ Association, Sitajakhala Dugdha Unnayan Samabai Samiti, Hindustan Paper Corporation and Assam Spun Silk Mill of Jagiroad also offered financial and infrastructural assistance to the College.
