Established on the 7th Day of November 1983, K. C. Das Commerce College began its humble origin as an evening College at Sonaram H.S. & Multipurpose School at Bharalumukh, Guwahati. Subsequently, on 30th November 1994, the College shifted to its permanent campus at Chatribari where it is presently situated.
The College was started with the financial assistance provided by prominent industrialist, Late Sri Ramesh Chandra Chaudhury who agreed to a request made by a few well-known educationists and social workers like Prof. Tarini Kanta Baruah, Prof. Dhirendranath Kalita, Prof. Bhupen Deka and Mrs. Minati Chaudhury to support the Institution. The College has been named in the cherished memory of his father, Late Keshab Chandra Das, an educationist of repute during the British era.
