In Assam the Planning & Development Department was set up towards the last part of 1944. Initially the Planning and Development Department was made responsible for the Community Development works till the separation of the Department of Community Development. However the Planning and Development Department continued to be responsible for local development works, the Umtru Hydel Project and the administration of overseas scholarship scheme and was also made the administrative Department for social welfare.
