Sri Debeswar Malakar, IASDeputy Commissioner
The name Lakhimpur is believed
to be originated from the word Lakshmi, the goddess of
prosperity. The district is mainly dependent upon agriculture and paddy.
Paddy is regarded locally as Lakhimi. The word pur
means full. Lakhimpur therefore means full of paddy or
the place where paddies are grown abundantly. Besides, the soil of the
district is alluvial and fertile for which crops flourish without use
of any artificial manure or hard labour.
