The Government Ayurvedic College is the pioneer institute of Indian system of medicine, in the entire North East India. It was established in the year 1948. The college is situated at Jalukbari, at a distance of 800 meter from the National Highway. Previously the  College was affiliated by Gauhati University, Assam  and still the old  batches of students have been continuing their work under this University. After establishment of Health University in the state, the teaching,   research   and   examination   etc.   of   the  College have   been brought  under   Srimanta  Sankardeva  University  of  Health  Sciences,  Assam  w.e.f. 2010 and the syllabus & curriculum  prescribed  by  the Central Council of Indian Medicine, the statutory   body  of Indian System of Medicine,   adopted  by  the  University.

Initially there was 4½  years diploma course which continued up to 1973. The enrolment of students was 25 per year and the Govt. of Assam, constituted a Board i.e. Board of Ayurvedic Medicine, to frame rule-regulation, syllabus, curriculum and also to conduct the examinations. Thereafter with the support of student strength, teachers and employees along with public pressure the college authority introduced degree course and in the(month of November,1974, the two year pre-Ayurvedic course started before the main 5½

year BAMS degree course under Gauhati University, Assam. After two years of introduction of the pre-Ayurvedic course, the pre-Ayurvedic passed candidates and the P.U. Sc. (presently HSSLC Science) passed candidates were eligible for admission into the BAMS course which was introduced in the year 1977. In the year 1983, the pre-Ayurvedic course was abolished and HSSLC Science students were admitted directly on the basis of merit having minimum 50% marks in P,C,B&E(Physics, Chemistry, Biology & English). Now the candidates have to appear in a Common Entrance Examination test (CEE,Assam) and according to the basis of merit the students get admission in the B.A.M.S. course.
