She is currently studying as a student at Shrimanta Shankar Academy, one of the finest educational institutions in Guwahati, Assam.
Princess Anoushkaa Patranabish got her first assignment as the Vice-President on 22 June 2012 to serve under President Dhrubajyoti Roy and remained in office until 02 October 2015. In addition to being the Vice President, she served as the Cabinet Minister for Social Welfare from 21 May 2014 until 27 December 2014, and again from 22 February 2015 to 06 December 2015.
She had been a member of the cabinet from 21 May 2014, but held low profile ministries like Social Welfare, etc. In December 2015, she was appointed as the Cabinet Minister for Home Affairs and served until April 2016. Upon the election of Dhrubajyoti Roy as the Prime Minister, she was appointed as the Deputy Prime Minister, a position that has been vacant since 2010. In July, the same year, she was entrusted the additional charge of the Ministry of Sanitation and Cleanliness Campaign.
On 02 October 2016, she was elected as the President of the Friends Society succeeding her older sister Tanishkaa Patranabish. But her term as the President was cut short in December, following her impeachment on 13 December 2016. She was succeeded by the Lieutenant Governor of Madhya Guwahati, Sarala Baishya, as the Acting President.
Soon after her impeachment as the President, she was appointed as the Governor of Beltola with the additional duties of the Administrator of Madhya Guwahati, but resigned on 30 December 2016 to be inducted into the Council of Ministers.

She again joined the Union Council of Ministers as the Cabinet Minister for Culture and Information and Broadcasting on 05th July 2017 under Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish, but was chosen to be the Vice-President, only a few days after becoming a Minister, on the 23rd July 2017 and continued to be in office until her elevation as the President on 25th December 2017.
Presidency and later career
On 25th December 2017, following the resignation of Dhrubajyoti Roy as President, she was elected as the President and continued to be President until 13 May 2018. Following Dhrubajyoti Roy becoming the Supreme Leader, she was appointed as the Heir and Deputy Supreme Leader and remained in office until the Supreme Court declared the mandate unconstitutional and hence, she was elected to be the Acting Head of State for 15 minutes on 11 September 2018 and then joined the Vice-Presidency under the President Dhrubajyoti Roy and remained in office until 29 September 2019, when she indicated to step down.

Deputy President and subsequent premiership
On 03 May 2020, she was elected by the Council of State to be the Deputy President, a position established under the new executive Presidency and served under Tanishkaa Patranabish.
