  • Assam at a glance

    Assam is predominantly rural and the economy primarily agrarian in nature with almost 70% of the population directly dependent on agriculture as a source of income and another 15% of the population directly on allied activities for its living. It is for this region that any strategy for the development of the state will have to keep agriculture at the centre of its planning process. The future of agriculture is intrinsically linked to rural development.

    Situated between 90 - 96 East longitude and 24 - 28 North latitude, Assam is bordered in the north and east by Kingdom of Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh. Along the south lies Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram. Meghalaya lies to her south west, Bengal and Bangladesh to her west.
