Assam is the only state who could bag four positions within the declared best 25.


The four Toppers from Assam are, Devam Kakoty from Tinsukia district, Kandarpa Neog from Sibsagar district, Manash Pratim Talukdar from Barpeta district and Ronuj Dutta from Dhemaji district.

Devam Kakoty presented his project entitled ‘ Termite Soil -Its Quality and Effect on growth of Rice’. The observation of the project is that ‘ Termite soil can hold more moisture, has more organic matter and nutrients resulting in better growth of rice crop in an eco-friendly procedure’.


Besides the national level science congress, the project was also selected for presentation in the 99th Indian Science Congress held at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Bhubaneswar from 3rd – 7th January . This project has been showcased by his co-worker Devraj Kakoty and was well appreciated by all visitors. The event was inaugurated by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.
