District Administration (Police)

Before the advent of the British there did not seem to be any organised police force in Assam, under the Ahom Kings or earlier. The army as well as the various officers of the kingdom were responsible for the maintenance of peace and safeguarding the lives and properties of the people. On taking over the administration of Assam, the British also did not immediately introduce any revolutionary changes in this respect, and the army was employed in the task of maintaining law and order. Army out posts were also set up in different places for this purpose.

Till 1874, Assam was administratively a part of the British Ruled province of Bengal and administered through an agent of the Governor-General. The police officers were home in the Bengal Cadre and the control and the supervision of the Police department were under the central administration. The police Act of 1861 was introduced in 1962 and the criminal Procedure Code were also brought into operation in the same year.

The strength of police force in Assam at the time of independence was around 8,000. For just 3,352 officers and men in 1874 when Assam was separated from Bengal and placed under the administration of a Chief Commissioner to the strength of 8,000 at the time of independence is not a spectacular development. But the British left behind a disciplined force with a set of rules and regulations, which provided the basic foundation of the present police administration in the state. After independence the police administration in Assam has grown from strength to strength.

There have been significant changes in the police administration at both the horizontal and vertical level. It is relevant to note that with the growth and development of the police administration in the post-colonial era, a number of new branches were established to meet the increasing demands of law and order and also of a peculiar situation obtained in the state, such as the large-scale infiltration of the foreign nationals from across the border causing a serious imbalance in the demographic structure of the state and threatening national security. Some of these newly created

Branches are:

  1. Bureau of investigation (Economic Offences).

  2. Special Branch.

  3. Criminal Investigation Deptt.

  4. Assam Police Border Organisation.

  5. Assam Police Radio Organisation.

  6. AssamRiver Police Organisation
  7. State Fire Service Organisation.

  8. All Women Police Station.

  9. 9. Establishment of Forensic Science Laboratory.

The Assam Police has grown from strength to strength during the last two decade. In 1980 it had a force of 40,290 and at the end of the 20th century its numerical strength stands at 60,721.

Since its humble origins over a century ago, the Assam Police has made great strides and today it is a well-organised and disciplined force with h long record of useful service behind it. During the course of the past decal the Assam Police has developed proud and healthy traditions of service conduct and though it had its failure and shortcomings, it has been able to play its part with credit and distinction and its record and perform at have been as good and as worthy as that of any other police force in India.

The Assam Police is slowly adjusting itself to the changing circumstances and is working towards the ideal of a Police Force of a Welfare State efforts and service will be to serve the interest of the people and unlike the past, is no longer an oppressive arm of an alien administration.

The mandate of the Guwahati Development Department is to oversee the development of GuwahatiCity through the development works carried out by Guwahati Municipal Corporation and Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority and in some cases by the other Departments of Government of Assam.

Further, the Department is also to construct the Permanent Capital Complex and execute the various developmental schemes under the 'Twelfth Finance Commission and through the funds sanctioned by the COI under NLCPR, One Time Additional Central Assistance and JNNURM.

The GMDA was established in 1992 as per Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority Act 1985 (amended). It replaced the erstwhile Guwahati Development Authority constituted in 1962 under the Town ad Country Planning Act, 1959 (amended). In order to ensure planned development of the Metropolitan area, GMDA has adopted the Master Plan and Zoning Regulations prepared by the Town and Country Planning Department, Govt. of Assam in the year 1992 and is now in the process of preparing a new Master Plan and Zoning Regulations.

GMDA'S jurisdiction extends over an area of 262 sq. km covering the entire Guwahati Municipal Corporation area, entire North Guwahati. Town Committee area and some revenue villages of Silasundari Ghopa Mouza, Pub Barsar Mouza, Dakhin Rani Mouza, Ramcharani Mouza, Beltola Mouza.

What exactly the GMDA does?

Planning: Preparation of Master Plan and Zoning Regulation Development: Preparation and execution of development schemes. Carry out or cause to be carried out such works as are contemplated the Master Plan.

Regulation and Control: To regulate and control the development though statutory plans and other measures.

Co-ordination: To co-ordinate development activities of other public agencies operating within Guwahati Metropolitan Area. A municipal corporation is the highest form of an urban local body (ULB) in India. Presently, GMC covers an area 216 sq. km under its jurisdiction and it is divided into 60 municipal wards.

The Guwahati Municipal Corporation Act, 1969, set up the GMC.

The main city is situated on the southern bank of the Brahmaputra. At places, the width of the river is 6 to 8 km, while its narrowest portion (1.8 km) is in the location of the famous bridge of Saraighat. There are many permanent and temporary islands and beaches in the river. Umananda a permanent island situated close to the city-centre provides a unique picturesque environment. The natural drainage system consists of the BharaluRiver (a tributary of the Brahmaputra) and its inter-linkages to the beels and to the BrahmaputraRiver. Apart from Bharalu, many small rivers like Morabharalu, Bahini, and Basista flow within the city interconnected with the feeder drains of the city. There are numerous beels spread throughout the city, which largely contribute to aesthetic and natural environments. Deepor Beel, a Ramsar Convention list wetland of international importance, the only such large water reserve of Guwahati adds to its close relation with nature. It is a famous site for the bird fans after being declared a bird sanctuary by the officials. Other water bodies/wetland in the city are Soru Sola Beel and Bor Sola Beel. The Bor-Sola Beel, which is about four times the length of Dighalipukhuri, stretches from behind the Meghdoot Cinema hall and the Nepali Mandir in the Paltan Bazaar locality in the north end to Sarabhatti locality in the south end and is the biggest water body within the city. There are several hills of different sizes and shapes. The hills in the northern areas (Nilachal or Kamakhya Hill in the north-west, Chitrasala or Kharghuli Hill in the north) close to the bank of Brahmaputra, south-central areas (Narakasur Hill, Kalapahar and Fatasil Hill) and eastern area (Narengi, Hengerabari, etc) have in fact guided Guwahati' development in three elongate corridors limiting to the plain areas Many of these hills such as the Nilachal, Chitrachal, Narakasu etc. are famous for their legendary religious and historic importance.

Natural Environment

Assam is a Cindrella state full of blue hills and red rivers. Scenic beauty is clear in Guwahati beside the Brahmaputra confronted by the Nilachal Hill. Since time immemorial, Guwahati has been shining in the hills and water bodies. The most striking beautiful feature is the crimson light of the setting sun on the Brahmaputra river waters. The historic Saraighat bridge no less boosts the beauty of this city. Same it is the Umananda temple at the island. The river Bharalu falls on the Brahmaputra carrying the waters of the Morabharalu, Bahini, and Basista. That’s what the natural drainage system here. Deepor Beel, is a wetland of international importance in the outskirt of Guwahati. It is an abode of bird that draws lakhs of fans from the country and abroad. Other water bodies to be named are Soru Sola Beel and Bor Sola Beel. The Bor-Sola Beel, which is about four times the length of Dighalipukhuri, stretches from behind the Meghdoot Cinema hall and the Nepali Mandir in the Paltan Bazaar importance.

Shopping Malls

The city boasts several shopping malls. These are the major ones: The Hub Mall, Bhangagarh; Dona Planet, G.S.Road; Vishal Mega Mart; The Cube Mall and Sohum Shoppe; Kolkata Bazaar; Big Bazzar, Bhangagarh; Pantaloons, GS Road, Relience Trend, Ulubari; Brand Factory, Ulubari.

The Land

The main city is situated on the southern bank of the Brahmaputra. At places the width of the river is 6 to 8 km, while its narrowest portion (1.8 km) is in the location of the famous bridge of Saraighat. There are many permanent and temporary islands and beaches in the river. Umananda a permanent island situated close to the city-center provides a unique picturesque environment. The natural drainage system consists of the Bharalu River (a tributary - the Brahmaputra) and its inter-linkages to the beels and to the Brahmaputra river. Apart from Bharalu, many small rivers Morabharalu, Bahini, and Basista flow within the city interconnected with the feeder drains of the city.

Guwahati straddles the valley of the river Bharalu, a small tributary of the river Brahmaputra. It is surrounded by hills, except where the Bharalu discharges into the Brahmaputra today is important because it is close to the seat of power in Assam, is a commercial centre, and is the node that connects six other northeastern Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Tripura.

The Starfish Morphology

  In brief, the major components of Guwahati's urban structure are:

  • The Core or the 'City Centre' with Pan Bazaar, Paltan Bazaar, and Uzan Bazaar
  • 61 Tin' Extended Core with Chandmari, Zoo Road and Ulubari U 'I'll e North-Southeast Guwahati-Shillong (GS) Road Corridor '1'110 Southern Sub-Centre of Ganeshguri
  • The Western Corridor towards Kamakhya, Jalukbari and Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport
  • The Eastern Corridor towards Narengi.

Guwahti's form has tentacles extending in the form of growth corridors towards south, east and west. The core area consists of the old city with Pan Bazaar, Paltan Bazaar, Fancy Bazaar and Uzan Bazaar, each one facilitating unique urban activities. Paltan Bazaar is the hub for transportation and Hotels, Pan Bazaar is centred surrounded educational, administrative, cultural activities, offices and restaurants. Fancy Bazaar is the hub for retail and wholesale commercial activities, and Uzan Bazaar mainly contains administrative, retail and residential areas. The additional parts of this Core are Ulubari, Lachit Nagar, Chandmari and also Zoo Road (now called R.G. Baruah Road). These are the lively, busy and bustling with city life areas.

The most important Corridor is the Guwahati- Shillong Road, better known as G.S. Road. The G.S. Road is about 15 kms from the Core Area and is now a major commercial area with outlets of almost all known retail brands as well as offices along both its sides. The G.S. Road is also a dense residential area along the inner parts, which one has to enter through a multitude of bye lanes. The capital complex of Assam at Dispur is situated in this Corridor. This Corridor has also facilitated the growth of a Southern City Sub-Centre at Ganeshguri, along with other residential areas to the south developed during the past few decades. If one keeps moving towards the west, say about 30 kms, there is a rail-road linking not only Guwahati but also other parts of the North Eastern Region east of Guwahati to western Assam and the rest of India. The corridor links residential and historically important areas such as Nilachal Hill (Kamakhya), Pandu, and Maligaon (headquarters of Northeast Frontier Railways) before it separates into two - one towards North Guwahati and the other continuing west towards LGB International Airport via the University of Guwahati at Jalukbari.

The third major corridor extends towards the east (around 15 km from the City-Centre) linking Noonmati (Guwahati Oil Refinery - IOC Ltd.) and Narengi. This Corridor has also facilitated major residential growth along its sides.

The National Highway NH 37, encircles the city's southern parts. It also links the Southern Corridor in Nine Mile Area to the Western Corridor in Jalukbari by means of a 4- lane Highway which is highly commercialized and is the place where the trucks 'lay bye'. The VIP Road links the Zoo Road with the Eastern Corridor as well as Hengerabari-Narengi. Massive Developments are taking place along these corridors too.
