All Assamese Students’ Association (AASA) sets up a help desk for students hailing from North-Eastern states to help make DU admission process easier.
Students from across India are gearing up to apply to the University of Delhi (DU). For students hailing from Assam and other Northeastern states, a help desk has been set by All Assamese Students’ Association’s (AASA) New Delhi branch.
Due to travel restrictions owing to the pandemic, they’ve set up a virtual help desk. “Like the previous years, the members of AASA, ND would not be able to be present physically in the respective districts of Assam due to the pandemic,” says their statement. “But as a youth organisation, AASA ND is always eager to help the students in fulfilling their desires, despite any obstacle.”
The numbers of various members are mentioned below, students can contact them for admission queries from 10 am to 9 pm. There is also a WhatsApp helpline number the students can text for queries.
The current executive council of the New Delhi branch is headed by Subhrajyoti Duarah, a graduate of Maharaja Agrasen College. The association is active throughout the year and hosts several events to make the students feel at home. “After the admissions are done, we conduct a fresher of our own,” says Ankita Rajkhowa, the Literary Secretary of AASA, New Delhi. “We also conduct blood donation camps, celebrate Bihu and festivals, and help students in any way we can.”
AASA was formed in 2009 in an attempt to bring the students of Assam together—they aim to help students and provide guidance. Up till last year, they used to travel to various districts of Assam to help students during the admission season. They went to five different districts of the state to help students with the same. For DU admissions, they used to set up a helpdesk at Assam Bhavan once the cutoffs released.
