Presence of people of Assam origin, also may be termed as Prabaxi Axomiya, are spread over 110 countries across the world. These Non Resident Assamese (NRA) are no longer there as beneficiaries or mere livelihoods earner alone but have become inevitable and integral part of development programmes, process and nation building of their host countries. Of late, most NRAs are showing their feelings for Assam, expressing willingness to do something in a sustainable manner for their native places and contribute or take part in transforming the state in to a prosperous and developed one at par with the other global destinations. The government of Assam, on the other hand, is also keen to engage Assamese Diasporas in the ongoing development process of the State, utilising their resources; knowledge, skills, expertises, wealth and other resources.

In this regard, government of Assam solicits opinions, comments and suggestions from NRAs through ‘MyGov Assam’ on, what could be done or how they could be involved in materialising this mission of transforming Assam to a developed State in all spheres.

Sooner or later Assam will reach the 35,000 crores debt range which is 30% of Assam GDP, in other words, the state is drowning in debt while the common problems that have been affecting the state for decades still remain.

As present Govt of India has taken steps to include professionals in Senior and critical post and already several have been absorbed , I wish the present State Govt will take similar steps for the State soon and then I would like to see our Dr Sangita Kakati as Secretary ( Culture), Govt of Assam. Let us wait & see.

Sonowal Government has inherited several problems from the last government of 15 years term: lack of maintenance of electrical wires (cannot happen in one day or one decade!), goofy report on some vulnerable 'mathauris', Man made problems regarding water resources, and the list can go on and on. Please make sure that the budget needed to solve 'the inherited problems' are made visible to the public. This sure will help further damage. I would like to submit several 'tips' to dredging & pollution

Its a shame for the state that we have not been able to address the issue of urban flooding in Guwahati for ages. Lack of drainage and deforestation are the known culprits , but what has been done to tackle them? Are we forever going to be the "Venice of the East" and only look at emergency response instead of prevention. I hope the present govt learns from other cities around the world . Engineers/City planners from Assam , lets take this head-on

This is a welcome initiative.
If Guwahati is to trully evolve to a "smart" city , the first step is ensure effective garbage disposal. Overflowing bins , roadsides littered with plastic bottles and polythene bags are not only an eye-sore but affects the quality of life of residents. Many cities have gone for smart-bin concept where bins alert garbage trucks to pickup and empty full bins on priority. Also , put surveillance cams at selected spots in the city. Clean city before smart city.

Why the state government instead of wasting resources in removing a Ghandi statue and trying to name places with a political leaders name who ironically formed part of the current government's political party? They don't integrate 74% of the local schools into the electrical grid and solve the flood issue that has been affecting the region for decades. If people had wanted mediocrity, they would have voted the INC in the last election.

I also wish govt of Assam takes steps towards makeing payment of Khazana (revenue) and munucipal taxes for land and building owners who are NRA easier. They must facilitate online digital payments of land revenue and taxes. Usually the land owner has to visit or find someone trustworthy to make this payment physically at the revenue office or respective gmc ward office and this has resulted in defaults without even the owner being aware of due dates in most cases. Please consider digitisation.

I have noticed that our state doesn't have any export oriented units (EOU). Earlier I believe getting raw materials to centres of manufacturing was an issue but with GST and removal of checkgates and middlemen and octroi, we should be able to focus on trying to establish some export oriented unit based on our intrinsic capabilities.

This will not only give the Govt a scope to interact with the members of this fraternity but the members themselves will get a chance to jnteract with each other, which might lead to some future collaborative projects. The chance of these members bringing some foreign investors or resource persons along with them to be a part of the event will eventually help the Government's cause and efforts.
