The EM advised the students who received the award to make the best use of it in order to benefit their future studies. Tokbi also expressed gratitude to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for his efforts to motivate students by introducing various schemes such as the distribution of scooters to meritorious girl students, the distribution of bicycles to Class 9 students, and many other schemes.

In his speech, KAAC Chief Executive Member (CEM) Tuliram Ronghang attributed the students’ success to their hard work and positive parental guidance.

According to him, the Anundoram Borooah Cash Awards not only acknowledge the academic achievements of students but also foster a spirit of excellence and recognise students’ dedication to promoting a culture of academic brilliance.
