We will start initially in Guwahati Medical College and shift to a permanent campus in Kamrup district later.”
The chief minister further said that the state government will also release an APP for Assam Police where FIR can be filed electronically in certain crimes like violence against women, murder etc.

“All these youths have been selected through a process based on meritocracy and they will get regular government jobs under the Assam government. Earlier we had issued appointment letters for almost 42,000 youths. So this will be around 88,000”, CM added.
