“Only Assam residents can apply for ACS and APSC from now”: CM Sarma

Guwahati: Assam cabinet on Wednesday decided that only residents of Assam would be permitted to appear for Assam civil service (ACS) and Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) exams.

The cabinet has also decided to dissolve the ‘language’ paper from the test to ease the selection process of candidates. However, there would be three conditions for a candidate to appear for the ACS and APSC tests.

Sarma said, “Since Assamese was compulsory for the candidate to sit for test of ACS and APSC creating problem for many local students studying in English medium, the state cabinet has decided to withdraw the language paper from the ACS and APSC tests. However, the candidate must be able to speak Assamese, any other associate language of the state or ethnic languages like Tiwa, Mising or Bodo etc.”

The chief minister added that it was also made compulsory for the candidates to have registration in the state’s employment exchange too.

“This will restrict outsiders from the state to appear for such job tests,” he added.

The chief minister also announced that the state government would set up a ‘Youth Commission’ in the state to prepare the educated youths of the state for national level courses.

He said, “We have seen a low enrollment of students in medical, engineering or any national level courses. The youth commission will select 100 students from each districts of the state and prepare them for such national level entrances and tests. We will impart them training from best educationists and institutes.”

We want the commission to prepare at least one lakh youths from the state in the next five years, the CM added.
