The Barak Valley (Bengali: বরাক উপত্যকা) is located in the southern region of the Indian state of Assam. The main city of the valley is Silchar. The region is named after the Barak river. The Barak valley mainly consists of three administrative districts of Assam State - namely Cachar, Karimganj, and Hailakandi. Among these three districts, North Cachar belonged to the Kachari Kingdom before the British Raj now Dima Hasao rules here, whereas Karimganj and Hailakandi belonged to the Sylhet district of then Bangladesh. Karimganj was separated from Sylhet after the 1947 referendum; with the rest of Sylhet falling under East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) and Karimganj under India.
