Divisions of Assam
The five divisions of Assam

The state of Assam in India has five regional divisions, each comprising a number of districts. The person responsible for the administration of a division is designated as a Divisional Commissioner.

History

Location of the oldest urban centres recognised as a municipality region of Assam before 1947.[1][2]

In 1874, Assam was constituted as a Chief Commissioner's province with the seat of the government in Shillong, the erstwhile capital of Assam, which is now in Meghalaya. To better administer the six districts of Goalpara, Kamrup, Sonitpur, Nagaon (formerly, Nowgong), Sivasagar (formerly, Sibsagar) and Lakhimpur, (the districts in the Brahmaputra valley, also called Assam Valley), the Judge of Assam Valley was given the additional charge of a commissioner in 1880.[3] In 1905, the offices of the Judge and the Commissioner were segregated in the Assam Valley;[4] in addition to adding a separate Commissioner's office for the administration of the Hill Districts and Surma Valley.[5]
