Baksa District: Administration and Profile BTAD

The Baksa district was engraved in parts of Nalbari, Barpeta, Kamrup and Darang districts. The historic BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council) formed the BTAD with four districts namely Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri as a result of the agreement signed on 10 February 2003. The name “Bagsa” is derived from the Bhutanese language. According to Bhutanese sources, they identified the area as “Bagsa Gate”. “Bagsa” means a kind of rice and “Duar” means entrance. So perhaps the name “Bagsa” or “Baxa” may be the source of Bhutan. The name Baxa itself is derived from various sources and predecessors so there is a lot of controversy over this name. However, no specimen has yet been found that could determine the final source.

Baxa district is a district in the Indian state of Assam. The total area of the box is 2458 km – urban area is 2451.14 km and rural area is 5.86 km. The district has a total population of 9,53,773 and a total of 1,99,701 houses. For administrative purposes, Baxa district has been further divided into Tehsils / Blocks / Community Development Blocks. Official Website:
