The Assam Cabinet headed by former Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal approved the proposal to make Bajali a full-fledged District on 10th August 2020. On 12th January 2021, Bajali was formally declared as a District. 

The District Working Code of the new district has also been allotted for the purpose of Basic Statistical Return (BSR) reporting by banks. The BSR Code is a seven-digit code that’s provided to the registered banks by the RBI. The first three digits in the code identify the bank, while the following four digits identify the bank branch. This code helps banks to keep a clear record of every online payment made towards tax.  

There is no change in the Lead Banks of the erstwhile district and of other districts in the state of Assam.
