Department of Botany

History:

LTK College was established on 22nd August 1977 with only an arts stream at the initiative of the local people. In 1994, the Science stream was established with the demands of the present modern age. The local people were encouraged to open the science stream in spite of economic paucity in the institution. In 1994 Science stream offers two years of higher secondary certificate courses in six subjects and established a three-year degree course in 1996 with the permission of Dibrugarh University. The Science stream was provincialized under the New Assam College Provincialization Act 2013 w.e.f. 14/08/2013.
