Shri Pranab Kumar Sarmah, ACSDeputy Commissioner, Darrang
The District of Darrang was
created with effect from July'1983 converting the erstwhile Sub-Division
of Mangaldai. The name Darrang was derived from the Bodo word Dourang,
which means 'Lilabhumi' (Playground) of Gods. According to Scholar
Late Dineswar Sarma, the word Darrang came from Dawrang which means
gate, as there was direct entry to Bhutan and from there to Nepal,
China etc. Gradually this was known as Darrang. More..
