The Assam Cabinet has authorised the introduction of a new bill in the upcoming Budget Session of the Assam Legislative Assembly, with the aim of restricting the use of unfair techniques during public examinations. 

The approval came at the weekly cabinet meeting on Monday, when the cabinet announced the introduction of a new bill called the “Assam Public Examination (Measures for Prevention of Unfair Means in Recruitment) Bill, 2024,” which aims to stop question paper leaks and the use of unfair tactics in public exams.

The law would be introduced during the upcoming Budget Session of the Assam Legislative Assembly, which begins on February 5, 2024, the cabinet informed.

The cabinet also made the following key decision:

Land settlement in 10 districts: As part of Mission Basundhara 2.0, land would be settled in Sonitpur, Tinsukia, Dhemaji, Nagaon, Biswanath, Kamrup (M), Kamrup, Bongaigaon, Goalpara, and Dhubri districts in favour of landless indigenous households.

418 indigenous households who are landless have had their land settlement accepted for each of the ten districts (including urban and rural areas).

84 percent of all authorised settlement offers under Mission Basundhara 2.0 have gone to applicants who fall within the SC/ST/OBC/MOBC categories.

De-reserving VGR/PGR Land in Golaghat: In the Golaghat district, VGR/PGR land must be de-reserved and an equivalent amount of land must be reserved as VGR/PGR.

On the de-reserved VGR/PGR property, seven indigenous households without land will be settled.

Before January 1, 2011, the indigenous landless families occupied the projected VGR/PGR land.
