On 27 December 1945 AD (11th Pousa of 1352 BE) the "Tripura Janasiksha Samiti" came into being at Durgachoudhury Para under the Jirania Block. This organisation was established by some enlightened Tripuri youths with an avowed object to set up schools and spread education among the children of the down-trodden Tripuri's in the state of Tripura.

At that time, the movement of the Janasiksha Samiti speedily transformed into a mass movement. The Samiti could establish 488 primary schools in different remote areas of the state with the active co-operation, financial help and labour of the mass people. Subsequently in 1950-51, most of these schools were recognised by the State Government. The Samiti also published the first Kokborok Magazine "Kwtal Kothoma" in 1954 AD under Sudhanya Deb Barma.
