Lakhimpur is an administrative district in the state of Assam in India. The district headquarters are located at North Lakhimpur. The district occupies an area of 2277 sq. km. and has a population of 10,40644 (as of 2011 Census). The name Lakhimpur is believed to be originated from the word "Lakshmi”" the goddess of prosperity. The district is mainly dependent upon agriculture and paddy. Paddy is regarded locally as "Lakhimi". The word "pur" means "full". Lakhimpur therefore means full of paddy or the place where paddies are grown abundantly. Besides, the soil of the district is alluvial and fertile for which crops  flourish  without use of any artificial manure or hard labour. Over and above fish, meat, vegetables, milk  were abundant in this district. Others say that  the word originated from Lakhsmi Devi, the mother of Bhuyan  Raja who was the descendent of  King Arimatta . As per Lakhimpur District Gazette (1976:4) , the district was notified as Lakhimpur District through a proclamation issued by then Governor General on July, 1839.  On 2nd October, 1971 the district was reorganized with  two sub divisions viz. Dhemaji and North Lakhimpur . Later it was again reorganized in the year  1980 with two subdivisions viz. Dhakuakhana and North Lakhimpur leaving Dhemaji as a separate district. It is bounded on the north by Siang and Papumpare District of Arunachal Pradesh and on the east by Dhemaji District and Subansiri river. Majuli Sub Division of Jorhat District stands on the southern side  and Gahpur sub division of Sonitpur District is on the West. Lakhimpur is also the gateway to several districts of Arunachal Pradesh including Itanagar.

The district was earlier regarded as "Koliapani" because there was practically no road communication to this district till 1950.  In the year 1954, the temporary aerodrome was started. From 1957 the ASTC buses started plying from Lakhimpur and from 1963 the North East Frontier Railway started train services from this district.

Administration of Lakhimpur District is divided into two sub-divisions namely North Lakhimpur and Dhakuakhana. North Lakhimpur sub-division consists of four police stations - North Lakhimpur, Boginadi, Laluk and Bihpuria. Dhakuakhana sub-division consists of two police stations - Dhakuakhana and Ghilamara. Administrative set-up of Lakhimpur District includes these major revenue circles - Lakhimpur, Dhakuakhana, Kadam, Nauboicha, Bihpuria, Narayanpur and Subansiri (Ghilamara). Further, there are nine blocks namely Narayanpur, Bihpuria, Karunabari, Nowboicha, Telahi, Lakhimpur, Boginadi, Ghilamara and Dhakuakhana.

The causes of flood in Lakhimpur District are due to excessive rainfalls  in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, melting of snow at Tibet  and  bursting of dams, which are formed by the landslides at the rivers flowing from Arunachal Pradesh. During flood the rivers get   charged with enormous quantity of silt and in their movement  the rivers  alter the conditions of flow and sometimes changes the river course causing untold miseries to the people living in its low-lying basin.

Lakhimpur, Bihpuria, Dhakuakhana, Nauboicha, Bihpuria, Narayanpur and Subansiri ( Ghilamara)


Dhakuakhana is a vast area comprising a great number of villages and some growing town. Geographically; it is situated between 27.60 degree to 27.35 degree north latitude and 94.24 degree to 94.42 degree east longitude. It is a vast and extended area situated between the mighty Brahmaputra and its tributary Subansiri. Enriched by the silt left behind by these two and many other rivers this fertile region is ideal for cultivation. Of course during the rainy season many places of this area get inundated by the rivers and become end inaccessible, when boat becomes the only means of communications. But when winter comes narrow and Jig-jag ways through jungles and paddy fields give one and ardent calling.

North Lakhimpur Sub-division consists of 4 Police stations viz. North Lakhimpur, Boginadi, Laluk and Bihpuria.
