Best of sympathizer and co-operator Sri Birendra Kishore Roy had been found in the same trend.
This assimilation of noble personalities are indeed a fact of ‘Divine-gift’.
The Draft Planning of Swami Vivekananda College had been continued since 1986, by Sri Arun Kumar Roy, Ex. Headmaster, S. P. Roy High School, Sonakhira. Next, come to the point of ‘Land’, in which Sri Sujit Narayan Biswas had a ‘Dialogue’ with the then Deputy Commissioner, Karimganj District, a man of high profile Subhash Das, IAS that, the issue had been raised up for the establishment of college Building. Mr. Das, D.C. , Karimganj participated in a meeting be held in 1986, in the campus of S. P. Roy High School, Sonakhira. The person concern of remarkable profile Ex-MLA’s Monilal Gowala , Late Madhusudan Tewary and Late Matilal Kanoo participated in the meeting.
In foresence of Dignatories in the meeting Mr. Das assured for the contribution of required land and he allotted total 45 Bighas of land for S.V. College, from ceiling surplus land which was allotted from Chandkhira T.E to Late Bidyadhar Tripathy for Dairy Firm but when it had not been utilized for Dairy firm for a long time, which is situated at Chandkhira T.E. under ATC Ltd. and Longai Vellay was re-allotted by the D.C. for S. V. College, vide his letter no- KRM/36/83-86/230-A dtd. 02-06-1987, in the anticipation of approval by Sub-Divisional Land Settlement Advisory Board, Karimganj.
The Name of Subhash Das, the then D.C. is unforgettable in the history of Swami Vivekananda College for the prompt establishment of college building on the provision of solvency of land.
Then the labour recruitment and organization had been vested to Late Amalendu Kr. Dutta, Muralidhar Kanoo, Late Birmangal Singha , renowned educationist and Late Lalmohan Paul , Businessmen to come forward for solving the rising issues, such as to cutting of the jungles and levelling-down the land of college area.

Ragavan for mechanical co-operation by providing ‘Dozer’ and otherwise assistance for leveling down the tillah Land, Mr. Ragavan accepted the proposal and did so. It is to be noted that Mr. Ragavan first time did enhance the hand of sympathy and co-operation.
