Abstract
Sadiya the eastern frontier of colonial Assam is one of the important geo commercial centres of British India. The land of several indigenous and hill tribes became an epic centre of migration from the eastern direction which gradually not only changed the demography but also created political instability in the region. The emergence of feudal tribal chiefs at Sadiya became a threat to the Ahom control over Sadiya which was seen even in the  early British era. So, an attempt has been made to trace the conflicting political scenario of the frontier region in the 18th and 19th century.

Key words: Ahom, Assam, British, frontier, Khamti,  singpho,  Sadiya
