The town of Dibrugarh has a glorious background in the history of women’s education in N. E. India. It was in Dibrugarh that the first Girls’ High School was established in Assam in the year 1885, which is now known as Dibrugarh Govt. Girls’ Higher Secondary and multi - purpose school. Before the establishment of this school, girls had to go outside Assam to complete High School with the help of scholarship granted by the State Government.
In 1945 with the establishment of the Dibrugarh College (renamed D. H. S. K. College) higher education was brought within easy reach of the local people and many girl students enrolled. Gradually the number of girls students increased manifold that the idea of a separate college for women was mooted. Soon the idea was translated into action and classes were held in the morning at the Kanoi College premises. Meanwhile with the collective efforts of many devoted experts having long academic experience in the field of education notably L. P. Dutta and G. C. Sharma, Hanumanbox Kanoi agreed to construct the building in memory of his Monohari Devi Kanoi after whom the college has been named. The state education minister helped in the acquisition of government land.
The college started functioning in July 1963 under the principalship of Dr. Jogiraj Basu, noted Oriental scholar. Starting with the total strength of 270 the college has now has an enrolment of approximately 1800 students. The increasing demand for seats in the college has made it difficult of the management of the College to accommodate all applicants seeking admission.
