HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF FORMATION OF SSB IN TEZPUR
The very idea for creation of a resistance organization at the time of Chinese aggression in 1962 had been derived by the senior officers of the Govt. when they have seen the courage, dedication, devoted efforts of some young boys of TEZPUR area who had formed an organization namely Youth Emergency Force to fight against the Chinese. This young group already involved in evacuation of weapons from north bank to south bank of Brahamputra beside helping the local administration. There was many deliberations with the members of the youth emergency force by senior Army and police officers on many occasions at circuit house Tezpur. All such discussions have culminated in to the creation of SPECIAL SERVICE BUREAU (SSB) during 1963. Only two members of the YOUTH EMERGENCY FORCE are alive at present at Tezpur
Tezpur Frontier has started functioning from the building which was originally constructed for the Hqrs of SSB North Assam Division, Tezpur at Agnigarh path, Tezpur during 2000. Consequent upon creation of Guwahati Frontier at Guwahati, Tezpur become the one of the Sector and started functioning from 2nd January, 2006 in the same building.
