Nalbari: First District in Assam With Women in All Top Admin Posts

Nalbari becomes the first district of Assam to be headed by women in almost all top administrative posts. 


From the deputy commissioner, superintendent of police (SP), the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) to the chief executive officer of the zila parishad, Assam’s Nalbari district has women officers in nearly all its top government posts.

Purabi Konwar is all set to be appointed as the first woman DC of Nalbari. Prior to this, she was the CEO of the Dhubri District Zila Parishad.

IPS officer Amanjeet Kaur, who was earlier the DCP (Traffic) in Guwahati is now the SP in Nalbari and the DSP there is Jupi Bordoloi.

Senior ACS officer Krishna Baruah, meanwhile, is the CEO of the district zila parishad.

Out of the seven revenue circles in the district, four are headed by women officers. There are also many women heading Nalbari’s social welfare, circle office and judiciary department — the district labour officer (Kabita Barman), district social welfare officer (Padmeswari Saikia), sub-registrar of revenue (Madhabi Kalita), sub-divisional agriculture officer (Lakhi Dutta) and others.
