Kamalanagar, 12 January, 2021: The Winter Session of Chakma Autonomous District Council which started on 5th January concluded today with its third sitting. The Second Sitting was held on 8th January.
In three Sittings the Session has passed one amendment bill, two bills, adopted a Rule of Mizoram Government and answered 12 unstarred and 2 starred questions.
In the Second Sitting the CADC (Constitution and Conduct of Business, etc.) (Amendment) Rules, 2020 was passed and the Mizoram Government Employees (Counting of Past Service) Rules, 2020 was adopted.
In the third Sitting held today the CADC (Finance & Accounts) Services Rules, 2020 and the CADC (Publication Board) Rules, 2020 were discussed and passed.
The Finance and Accounts Department will be the second department in CADC to have its own service rule, the first being the Legislative Department which had its service rule (Chakma Autonomous District Council Secretariat (Recruitment and Condition of Services) Rule, 2020) passed in the Special Budget Session, 2020 held in the month of July, 2020. The Bill mover Dg. Rasik Mohan Chakma, Hon’ble CEM, CADC made a point that effort shall be made to make every department have their own services rules. Presently, there is only one services rule for all the departments of CADC.
The CEM also expressed regret over the inordinate long time taken for the rules to receive the assent of the Governor. As many as 13 thirteen rules passed by CADC are languishing with the government of Mizoram for the assent of the Governor.
