The Districts of Assam (the four newest districts are not shown)

Assam, a state of India, has twenty-seven administrative districts.

A district of an Indian state is an administrative geographical unit, headed by the Deputy Commissioner (DC), which combines the offices of the District Magistrate ultimately responsible for maintaining law and order and District Collector responsible for collection the revenue. Generally, an officer belonging to the Indian Administrative Service becomes the DC but occasionally officers belonging to the Assam Civil Service too get appointed. The DC is assisted by a number of officials belonging to different wings of the administrative services of the state.

The districts of Assam are grouped together in four regional divisions, headed by a Commissioner.

A superintendent of Police, an officer belonging to Indian Police Service is entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining law and order and related issues.

The twenty seven (although the map is showing 23) districts of Assam state are:
