|||| Geographical Introduction: ||||

Plate Tectonics theory describes Assam as the eastern most projection of the Indian Plate, where the plate is thrusting underneath the Eurasian Plate creating a Subduction zone as well as the great Himalayan Mountain Range.
This unique geographic condition renders Assam to posses a unique geomorphic environment with vast green plains, dissected hills of Deccan Plateau system as well as the great Himalayas all around its north, north-east and east.
