The Department of Botany came into being in the year 1963 with commencement of Pre-University classes under Gauhati University with Miss K. Dutta managing the department as a part-time teacher.

Shri Kakati nurtured the department and developed it to make it ready for degree classes and then to start the Honours courses along with Smt. Anjali Dutta who joined in 1965. Shri Kakati retired in 2001 as the Vice-Principal of the College while Smt. Dutta in the late nineties. Dr. (Mrs.) Ayesha Ashraf Ahmed who taught in the College for nearly twenty years since 1985, resigned from the services in 2006 due to personal reasons. After the retirement of Shri. Kakati, Smti. R.
