GU against COVID-19

Over 350 postgraduate students have joined their hands as volunteers to help the Government of Assam under the Assam Care Scheme to help put cash in their pockets of all those needy Assamese people stranded outside Assam during this lockdown. They are being trained professionally to handle and contact these stranded people, as and when necessary, on behalf of the Govt of Assam.

These student volunteers are providing their help under the mentorship of the Honourable Vice Chancellor of GU and eight other professors of various departments of the university.

Assam government has identified 4.32 lakh people who are eligible for a ‘subsistence allowance’ who are now stranded outside the state due to nationwide lockdown. According to the Health Ministry of Assam, over 9.29 lakh missed calls were received at the state helpline number, of which 4.32 lakh calls have been verified. With the verification process still underway, the state government plans to provide financial assistance to the first 50,000 people registered through the National Health Mission (NHM).
