Assam <http://www.business-standard.com/search?type=news&q=Assam>government
today clarified that there has been no change in the language policy of the
state government which is governed by the provisions of Assam Official
Language Act, 1960.

The government said that Assamese shall be used for "official purposes of
the state at the state secretariat and the offices of the Heads of the
Departments".

The government order said that "Bengali language shall be used for
administrative and other official purposes up to district level in Cachar
district".

Assam government on September nine had withdrawn Assamese as the official
language of the Barak valley which had created confusion in the other areas
of the state.
