The administrative district ‘Bajali’ with it’s headquarter at Madan Rauta Nagar, Pathsala was created today by the government of Assam after due consideration from the Governor of Assam.
The decision was taken for administrative expediency and in the interest of the public convenience.
As per the Governor’s notification, the geographical limits of Bajali district will be co-terminus with the newly delimited legislative assembly constituency of Bajali.
