Dhemaji is one of the most remote places of Assam. It is a small town
located in the foothills of Eastern Himalayas in the eastern most part
of the state of Assam. The town is bounded by mighty Brahmaputra and its
tributaries through the district. As such, it is a flood prone area.
The term Dhemaji is believed to originate from a
combination of two Assamese words ‘dhal’ which means flood and ‘dhemali’
which means play.
The earliest capital of the Tai Ahoms was built in
Habung in Dhemaji district. As such, ruins of the kingdom are still
prevalent in the town. Dhemaji came out as a full fledged district on
14th October 1989 after it was split from Lakhimpur district.
According to the 2001 census, Dhemaji recorded a
population of 11,851. The literacy rate of Dhemaji is 76% and the
percentage of males to females is 54% to 46%.
The economy of Dhemaji is primarily dependent on
agriculture. Gram Panchayat, Zila Parishad, DRDA etc have come out as
options for people to engage themselves other than agriculture. These
organizations and schools are only somewhat providing income to the
people in Dhemaji.
