Etymology and history

The name "Purvanchal" means a region in the east. It is a blend of two words - Purv (meaning east and Anchal (meaning region). The province was established on 1 January 2017 after the newly elected Parliament adopted the State Reorganisation Bill, 2017 on 31 December 2016. It was initially named as Greater Guwahati, but was renamed in May the same year as Brihattar Guwahati. From 2017 to 2020, it was known as Brihattar Guwahati, until in March 2020, that then President Dhrubajyoti Roy named it as Purvanchal.


The Province of Purvanchal is one of the six royal provinces of the State of Vishwamitra. Since the establishment of the monarchy in June 2020, it has been governed by a Rajpramukh, who serves as the absolute monarch in the province. The current Rajpramukh of Purvanchal is H.R.H. Dhrubajyoti Roy.

From 2017 until 2020, the head of the province of Purvanchal was a Governor, who was appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister and remained in office for a term, based on the pleasure of the appointer. The office of the Governor had been both executive and ceremonial. In 2019, the office of the Chief Minister was established in Purvanchal, but the system was short-lived and was replaced by the Governor as both the head of state and head of government.
