GUWAHATI: During a meeting held at the Bongaigaon Deputy Commissioner's Conference Hall on Wednesday, the Assam Cabinet decided to combine the SEBA and AHSEC.

Assam's Board of Secondary Education (SEBA) and Assam's Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) are now separate entities.

On July 29, 2020, India's Union Cabinet approved the National Education Policy of India 2020 (NEP 2020), which sets the direction for the country's future educational system.

The present policy has superseded the 1986 National Policy on Education. The programme provides a defined structure for basic through postsecondary learning, as well as vocational training, in both rural and urban India. The plan aims to totally overhaul India's educational system by 2040.

Shortly after the programme was announced, the administration affirmed that no one would be compelled to learn a certain language and that the medium of instruction would not be shifted from English to any regional language.

The NEP 2020 proposes various policy changes in the area of teachers and teacher education. A four-year bachelor's degree in education will be the minimum requirement for becoming a teacher by 2030.

Furthermore, the educator recruitment procedure will be enhanced and made more transparent. The National Council for Teacher Education will develop a National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education and National Professional Standards for Teachers by 2021, and a National Professional Standards for Teachers will be developed by 2022.

The suggestion to merge the current educational boards was made in order to successfully implement the new National Education Policy 2020 in Assam (NEP 2020). The government of Assam has resolved to use the 5+3+3+4 system.

The Assam Secondary Education Act, 1961 (Assam Act, XXV of 1961) established a Board of Secondary Education to monitor, manage, and promote secondary education in the state of Assam.

On March 14, 1962, the Assam Board of Secondary Education, or SEBA, was created. system of education (classes XI and XII). The Assam Upper Secondary Education Council (AHSEC), a state administrative council under the jurisdiction of the state education department, was responsible for regulating, overseeing, and improving the higher secondary education system (classes XI and XII).
