Guwahati, 07 June 2020: Education and finance minister of Assam, Dr. Himata Biswa Sarma today on a press meet at Janata Bhawan state that the meritorious student of 2019 will receive the Prestigious Anundaram Borooah (আনন্দৰাম বৰুৱা) Award soon from Next week. The computer will be distributed in the respective school following the guidelines.
Each year the HSLC, High Madrassa, and FM Examinations Aspirants were felicitated with Anundoram Borooah’s prestigious award for outstanding results in the Board Exams. However, this year the program is already delayed due to COVID 19 Pandemic. Now students who registered already can have this award from the next week.
However reply to media person, Dr. Himanta also states that because of the current situation worldwide it is not possible to gather components of computers. So, the govt decides to provide Rs. 20,000 as cash to the HSLC/AHM students of 2020 instead of computers. So students of HLSC /AHM 2020 will receive cash instead of a computer.
In this regard, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) will soon release a website or portal where students can submit their bank details ( including account number, IFSC code, etc). It will take a month for this process and in the month of August, the amount will be credited to the respective bank accounts of students.
