In a move to ensure equitable opportunities for students with varied backgrounds, Assam’s CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, announced that the Assam government granted approval on Friday for seat reservations in Government Engineering Colleges’ Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) and Bachelor of Engineering (BE) courses. This applies to students who graduated from state government schools.
