The same was informed by Assam education minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Twitter. He held a meeting with the principal secretary of the education department and principals of the colleges to ensure execution of the scheme.
The government has also decided to waive off all fees of admission, examinations, laboratories, excursion, registration, prospectus etc. for 2020-21. 

The benefit of fee waiver will cover State Universities, Govt.
