The district Kamrup Metro was created bifurcating the old Kamrup district on 3rd February 2003. The head quarter of the district is Guwahati. Once known as Pragjyotishpur(the light of the East), Guwahati derives its name from the Assamese words “Guwa” means areca nut and “Haat” means market. Guwahati has a magical aura that still lingers over the ever – expanding city.

The Deputy Commissioner is entrusted with overall responsibility for law and order, implementation of government schemes and is also authorised to hear revenue cases pertaining to the district. He/she is also authorised to collect Land Revenue and is therefore also referred collector (revenue) and also to control encroachment of government land in the district.
