The Act received the assent from the Governor on 7th September, 2005. The University formally started functioning from December 11, 2006 after Professor Srinath Baruah, Professor in Economics, Gauhati University assumed office as its First Vice-Chancellor. Subsequently, the University declared July 20th, the birth day of Krishna Kanta Handiqui after whom the University was named, as its Foundation Day.
