Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal made the announcement on Thursday.
The 18-year-old Hima was earlier named the sports ambassador of Assam after her heroics in the U-20 World Championship in Finland.
Hima created history by winning the gold medal in the women's 400-metre event at the IAAF World U20 Championships in Tampere, Finland in July. Hima registered a time of 51.46 seconds in the final at the Ratina Stadium to become the first Indian track athlete to win gold in a world championship across all age groups.
Also, in the 18th Asian Games, Hima Das claimed the silver medal in the women's 400 metres race after clocking a time of 50.79 seconds.
It may be mentioned that sprinter Hima Das was among the 20 sportspersons who received the Arjuna Awards from the President of India this year.
