Many workers have now found themselves jobless while many students are making up for lost study hours.
Peace and Solidarity Forum, which was formed in August to support people from northeast, Darjeeling and Tibet, has come forward to help those who lost their jobs.
A manufacturing unit owner said he would like to have the northeastern workers back on board for they are skilled and experienced but it could take some time for they were immediately replaced by new recruits once they decided to go back. People working in hotels and apartments have also reportedly lost their jobs.
Assam Social Welfare Minister Akon Bora said everything was returning to normalcy and that people should concentrate on their jobs.
