As of now, ex-gratia is being given to those militants who gave up violence and surrendered after April 1, 2005.
The state government is discussing the matter with the Centre.
Around 7000 former militants have received the ex-gratia so far.
Meanwhile, the Assam Government has urged the Centre to provide 25 companies of paramilitary forces to maintain law and order in the state.
These forces were withdrawn from Assam and deployed in the poll-bound states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Mizoram, Delhi and Chhattisgarh.
