The Naorem Birahari College was established on 8th February 1986 with financial support from the local public, particularly from Naorem Birahari Singh who was designated as the founder donor of the College. With the moral and physical support of the larger public, the college was established to impart higher education to the students who are coming from economically and educationally backward areas of the state, particularly to the local inhabitants who are deprived from higher and technical studies due to poor socio-economic

conditions. After 33 years of establishment, the college had opened technical streams in four disciplines viz. Bachelor in Computer Application, Bachelor in Food technology, Bachelor in Fashion Designing, Bachelor in Biotechnology, Bachelor of Mass Communication, Bachelor Psychology, Bachelor of Physical Education & Sports Science, Bachelor of Yoga Science, Bachelor Social Work, and Bachelor of Dance & Music.

The College is situated at Khundrakpam Makha Leikai which is about 11 km from the state capital Imphal on the northern side of Imphal East District. Naorem Birahari College is the lone college under this constituency. The College has more than 50 adopted villages under its own constituency and has about 10 adopted villages under other three different constituencies from where many students are coming to acquire higher education.

After its establishment in 1986, Naorem Birahari college was temporarily affiliated to Manipur University in 1994. Then Manipur University extended its permanent affiliation to the college from 2004 dated 6th May 2004. At present, the College is a Grant in Aid Degree College from 2016 having classes for undergraduates’ programmes in 32 disciplines. During the academic session 2021-22 a total of 976 students were enrolled in the College under the UG programme.
