A bird eye view of the Department : The sole mission to establish Nirmal Haloi College is to provide education for the poor and disadvantaged with accessibility to higher education by bringing the education to the doorstep. Keeping the mission in front the Department of History was established from the time of inception. The founder of the institution realized the importance of the subject as the famous historians realized- what men have done and saoid and above all what they have taught. Establishment of the Department has been done, but the problem of getting the qualified teachers was the major problem. Hence they appointed two qualified teachers from the nearby Higher Secondary School.

There was vey good response from the students. The changing pattern of course at the Pre-degree and higher secondary school solved this. Secondary courses bring a set back to the subject noy only in this institution but also within the state as a whole. History has been made an optional subject at the secondary schools. The UG course has also paid less attention to the subject. The list of founder teachers and details of the students enrollment in the beginning are appended below.
