SCOPE OF FACILITATING HIGHER EDUCATION IN DIMORIA

Education is the most fundamental requirement for overall development of a nation. Higher education takes a central place for all-round progress in India. The modern higher education system in India is about 158 years old counting from the year 1857. After independence there has been remarkable growth in the field of higher education in India. The Indian higher education has undergone a rapid change during last decade because of the new wave of LPG (Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization). The change has been taking place both qualitatively and quantitatively. In the state of Assam although there has been witnessing such a progressive trend, still we can quote some parts of Assam having scope to bring momentum in educational system which is overdue for the national development in general.

In this context, we would like to bring to notice about the prevailing educational atmosphere of Dimoria under Guwahati Sub-division of Kamrup (Metro) district of Assam. Although Dimoria is situated at 22 KM (approx.) from State Capital Dispur, it is keeping ahead without appreciable facilities of education in all levels. There are only three pioneer institutions providing higher education, such as, Dimoria College, Sonapur College and Maloybari Junior College. But with regard to the requirement of population of the area the facility is not satisfactory. Again, the area has been facing insufficient healthcare facilities, particularly childcare and mother-care. Moreover, most of the households in villages lack proper sanitation and many villages still require connectivity of transportable roads.
