Chasing 165 for a win, Assam who started the fourth and final day on 70 for three, achieved their target in the second session with man-of-the-match Arun Karthik unconquered on 55. Delhi slumped to their first loss of the season.
The victory though was set up by their bowlers who bundled the visitors for 149 after putting the Gautam Gambhir-led side into bat.
New ball bowlers Krishna Das (4-38) and Arup Das (3-49) shared seven wickets each to rattle the Delhi top order.
The Gokul Sharma-led Assam then took a slender lead after posting 157 in their first innings. Karthik top-scored with a gritty 81.
Delhi bowlers Manan Sharma (4-41) and Pradeep Sangwan (3-33) made it count at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.
But Delhi's second batting outing was also a short affair after the Assam bowlers once again made life difficult for the visiting batsmen, who could only muster 172.
Even though Unmukt Chand scored a gutsy 44 in the second innings, Gambhir who managed 4 and 0 in the first and second innings respectively, failed to lead by example.
