Dr Suresh Nath, Registrar of the University conveyed this decision and urged Dr Nripen Barkataky and Dr Jayanta B Sarma to act as the coordinators of the Europe chapter of GUOAA and help set it up as as a charitable organisation. This overseas alumni association is expected to operate from the UK for the entire European region. This model of overseas alumni association may also be applied by others in opening up new chapters of the GUOAA in other parts of the world. Once the connectivity is established, registered members of GUOAA would finally be the members of Gauhati University Alumni Association subject to fulfillment of a set of conditions that are yet to be finalised. Professor Jogen Chandra Kalita, from the Department of Zoology, Gauhati University has been appointed as the coordinator of the international chapters of the alumni association of Gauhati University.
