Sir,
I have found these two unknown insects in Dibrugarh, Assam, India but
don’t know the name.
So would like to know the name.

Hi again Jeet,
We are uncertain of the identity of your green insect.  We believe it is in the same order as the Planthopper, which is Hemiptera, but we are not certain.  It shares many similarities with this immature Glassy Winged Sharpshooter on BugGuide.  We haven’t the time for research, so we are posting your request, and perhaps one of our readers will have an idea.

Hi Daniel,
Reference to your second mail, the green insect is small in size. Say
like 1cm (max) and body is flatten.
Hope this will help you to identify this creature.
Regards,
Jeet Saikia,

larva (nymph) of Cicadellidae,  identical with or (more probably) related to genus Ledropsis:

Thanks Erwin,
Nymphs are notoriously difficult to identify to the species level, but the link you provided looks very similar.
