Abstract: This paper is a case study in some detail of the revenue administration and the changes in the agrarian scenario that emerged as peasant settlers from East Bengal arrived in the province of Assam during the period under review. The study chooses Nowgong district as this period showed almost a point to point migration from the district of Mymensingh to Nowgong. The paper navigates through several dimensions of agrarian practices such as cropping pattern, land usage, and administrative practices such as survey and settlement methods, relinquishment of lands, and rules of reassessment in order to bring to the fore the mentality of the administrators who have been understood as the main patrons of the flow of migration.
