Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday announced that from the next session of the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC), candidates will be able to write their prelims and mains in the Assamese Language.

Addressing a press conference here in Guwahati, CM Sarma stated that it has come to their notice that students from Assamese mediums find it quite difficult to attempt their APSC exams in the English language, thus, they fail to crack the examination.  

“On Saturday evening, I received a WhatsApp message from a student in Nalbari requesting him that if the candidates for APSC can write their exams in the Assamese Language. I enquired about it with the APSC officials asking about the language barrier and they confirmed to me that as per the rules, candidates can only write their exams in English. This is quite shocking for me as I was not aware of the issue for the last 15 years of my political carrier. Even IAS candidates can write in Assamese. Therefore, this morning we took a decision that from next year, candidates will be able to write their APSC prelims and mains in the Assamese Language.”

Earlier, APSC candidates were only allowed to write prelims and mains only in the English language.

CM Sarma also mentioned that the Assam government’s decision to withdraw the language paper for Assam Civil Service (ACS) exams conducted by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) was a student-centric decision and it is nothing to do with Saturday’s decision of allowing Assam Public Service Commission (APSC), candidates to write their prelims and mains examination in the Assamese Language.
