Districts and Administration of Assam: Assam has 27 districts, which are further divided into 49 sub divisions. Each district is administered by a Deputy Commissioner, appointed by the Indian Administrative Service or from the Assam Civil Service,who takes care of the smooth operation of each district. The role of the Deputy Commissioner combines the roles of the District Magistrate and the District Collector. Hence the Deputy Commissioner is responsible not only for the overall administration of the district, but also law and order and revenue collection. A Superintendent of Police, an officer from the Indian Police Service, looks after the law and order of the district.
