The name "Howraghat" came from portmanteau of two Karbi words hawar (area) and kehat (crossing), therefore the meaning is "crossing the area", basically crossing the river (present) in the area. However over the age the name changed to "Howra-ghat" due to differences in pronunciation by various new communities living and settling in and around the area.
As of 2001[update] India census, Howraghat had a population of 4659. Males constitute 58% of the population and females 42%. Howraghat has an average literacy rate of 80%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 85%, and female literacy is 73%.
