Dear Sir/Madam,

Formation of new districts in the State of Assam –
Assignment of Lead Bank Responsibility

The Government of Assam vide Gazette Notifications dated January 25, 2016, February 26, 2016 and August 5, 2016 had notified the creation of eight new districts in the State of Assam. It has been decided to assign the lead bank responsibility of the new districts as detailed below:-

Sr No Newly carved district Erstwhile District Sub Divisions under the newly created district Lead Bank Responsibility assigned to District Working Code allotted to new district
1 Nagaon Nagaon Kaliabor United Bank of India 014
2 Hojai Nagaon Hojai Civil United Bank of India 409

2. Further, although two new districts “East Kamrup” and “South Kamrup” have been published in the Gazette Notification dated February 26, 2016, these two districts are still non-functional as per the communication received from the Government of Assam. Lead bank responsibility will hence be assigned separately for these districts.

3. The District Working Codes of the new districts have been allotted for the purpose of BSR reporting by banks.

4. There is no change in the lead bank responsibilities of the other districts in the State of Assam.

Yours faithfully
