Hojai District is a new district in Assam, India. It was formed on 15 August 2015. Hojai is the headquarters of the new district. Hojai District is formed from three tehsils of Nagaon District, namely Hojai, Doboka and Lanka. Hojai was a part of undivided Cachar during Kachari rule and was known as "Central Cachar". The name Hojai came from the surname Hojai of the Dimasa Kacharies.
According to the Indian Census of 2011, the three tehsils in the newly formed Hojai District had a population of 931,218 in 2011. Among those 499,565 are Muslim and 424,065 are Hindu. Muslims constitute 53.65% of district population, Hindu constitute 45.53% of district population. Since Hojai area was part of undivided Kachari kingdom, people from Cachar, Hailakandi and Karimganj have settled in the area in those days. Some from Sylhet area of then eastern Bengal also settled in Hojai. After partition of India, a large number of Bengali Hindus have migrated to the area from the then East Pakistan and are mostly settled in the towns such as Lumding and Hojai.
