Nestled among the lush greenery and vast paddy fields, Panigaon OPD College is dedicated to impart knowledge and skills among the young and bright minds of the vast area under Telahi and Kamalabaria Mouza. The institute was established in the year 1984 with the aim to cater to the needs of higher education of the socio-economically backward and inquisitive students of this area. The ruminations and discussions for establishing a college in the area had begun in the early 1980s. The first consensus upon this matter was taken in a meeting held on 10th October, 1982 in the premise of SolalGaon L. P. School. After two years, the earnest and resolute efforts of far-sighted and conscious masses resulted in establishment of this college. The first classes were held at Panigaon Higher Secondary School with 65 students from 14 September, 1984.
A renowned businessman and social worker Mr. Om Prakash Dinodia generously contributed 1 lakh rupees at the beginning and constructed the permanent building at the expense of 4 lakhs rupees. Complying with the wishes of this munificent patron, the college was named after him. Since its inception, the college is thriving to provide its students quality education and skills with a bunch of resourceful and trained faculty in a suitable atmosphere.
The college is affiliated to Dibrugarh University. Currently, we offer courses in Higher Secondary Course in Arts under Assam Higher Secondary Education Council and B.A. (both Pass and Honours) in Assamese, Economics, Education, English, History, Philosophy, Political Science and Sociology. Moreover, A study centre of KKHSOU is situated in the college to help the desirous people to pursue higher education through open and distance learning.
