Branch Profile

The Development Branch of the Office of The Deputy Commissioner is a critical branch that looks after all development-related matters in the district. However, as Dima Hasao is administered under the provisions of the VIth Schedule of the Indian Constitution as well, a significant portion of the development agenda is under the jurisdiction of the North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council (NCHAC). Nevertheless, the Development branch of the Office of The Deputy Commissioner, Dima Hasao, still has significant responsibilities along the development front. The branch is headed by an Addl. Deputy Commissioner and is aided by Assistant Commissioners and dealing assistants as well as interpreters and other Grade-IV staff.
