22,000 girl students who secured first division in higher secondary final examination 2020 will be awarded ‘scooties’ by Assam Government this year.
Addressing a press meet in Guwahati Assam health, finance and education minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the petrol-run scooties will be distributed by October 15. One who needs electric scooties, can apply for the same through www.sebaonline.org.
The government will be launching a new website, sebaonline.org, whereby, the students may choose to mention their choice of variant.
However, if anybody fails to do so, she will be awarded with the automatic petrol scooty, he added.
