A total of 30,209 female students and 5,566 male students will soon be proud recipients of these scooters, thanks to this prestigious award scheme. This initiative is aimed at not only recognizing the academic prowess of these students but also encouraging them to excel in their future endeavors.

Furthermore, the Assam government has also extended its support to students who have achieved 75 percent and above in the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examinations conducted by the Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA). These students will be rewarded with a cash prize of Rs 15,000 each as part of the Anundoram Borooah Award Scheme on November 29, 2023.
