The state budget for 2021-22 was passed by the Assembly with supplementary grants for the current fiscal also approved during the same session.

The House also witnessed discussions on border disputes between Assam and neighbouring states. An all-party Assembly team also visited the inter-state border with Mizoram which had reported violent clashes on July 26 that had left six Assam Police personnel and a civilian dead.
