Dhubri District (Assamese: ধুবুৰী) is an administrative district in the state of Assam in India. The district headquarters are located at Dhubri town which is situated at ~290 km from Guwahati, the state capital. This was also the headquarters of erstwhile undivided Goalpara district which was created in 1876 by the British government. In 1983, Goalpara district was divided into four districts and Dhubri is one among those. As of 2011 it is the second most populous district of Assam, after Nagaon. Currently three tea gardens, whose contribution to the district economy is almost negligible, cover an area of 1362.33 hectares.
