Dibrugarh is the headquarters of Dibrugarh District, Assam, India. The city of Dibrugarh, situated on the banks of the River Brahmaputra, in Upper Assam, India, is the gateway to the three tea producing districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, and Sivasagar. These three areas account for approximately 50% of India's Assam tea crop and this gives Dibrugarh its rightly earned sobriquet as the Tea City of India. Oil and Timber are the other big two industries in and around Dibrugarh. In 1950, an earthquake measuring over 8.5 on the Richter Scale, changed the course of the River Brahmaputra, and this caused the destruction of more than 3/4ths of the city. The city has since then been rebuilt over the years, but the River Brahmaputra nearby is, as it always has been, a constant reminder to its people that live in its shadow, of its turbulence and all encompassing journey to the sea.
