Kamalanagar, March 5, 2024: Dg. Cheemala Siva Gopal Reddy, the Deputy Commissioner of Lawngtlai District came on a one-day visit to Kamalanagar today, the headquarters of CADC, where he was accorded a warm welcome at the CADC Rest House, Kamalanagar, by the staff of the various departments of CADC.

There he held a meeting with the Executive Secretary of CADC and the Heads of Departments. He expressed concern at the abysmally low literacy rate (46.38%) of the CADC area which stood in contrast to the healthy state average of 91.33%. The Education Officer informed him the reasons; foremost among them being the lack of infrastructure with 70% of the schools being in dilapidated condition, along with shortage of teachers and inadequate avenues for higher secondary studies especially in the science and commerce streams. He also highlighted certain socio-economic practices which hamper the education of the children, such as the tendency of the parents to withdraw their children from the schools during the harvest season.

The Deputy Commissioner also enquired about the output of the primary sectors such as agriculture, fishery, poultry etc. and welcomed suggestions on increasing the output of these sectors.

On the health sector he was informed that CADC has only two Primary Health Centres, one at Borapansury which operates on the PPP model and lacks adequate facilities, whereas the one at Longpuighat is yet to be operationalized. He was also concerned about the relatively low rate of vaccination in the area and sought the help of the local officials in convincing the people of the area to undertake the vaccination of their children in order to help them lead a healthier life.

The Court President & Recorder requested the Deputy Commissioner to arrange for legal training to the staff of the Law & Judicial Department.

A Souvenir of CADC Golden Jubilee, Notebook and a Calendar of CADC was presented to all the visiting members as a token of gift from CADC.

Dg. Pronit Bikash Chakma while welcoming the visiting team members expressed his happiness for their visit to Kamalanagar and their keen interest towards CADC and its people. He informed that this visit to CADC from International Agency like JICA is the first of its kind as CADC is one of the remotest and underdeveloped part of the country. He gave a brief report on CADC and appraised many challenges which bar the path for its development. He mentioned that only a meagre amount is left from the non-salary component meant for development which is not even enough for the maintenance of Offices is one of the reasons that CADC is lagging behind in every spheres. With the visit of the JICA team, the people of CADC not only will be beneficial but also certain structural development like roads will take place even though it is still at rudimentary stage to say, he added.

People will earn permanent livelihood through alternative source of income other than jhum cultivation when certain projects under JICA will be taken up in the time to come, he further added.

Dg. Akihito Sakurai informed that the purpose of their visit to Kamalanagar is to study and access the conditions for conservation of forest and its biodiversity within CADC area and the feasibility of projects under JICA in CADC. He invited all to share their views on the subjects accordingly. After which a round of interaction with the team members was held with respective Head of Departments.

Dg. Bimbisar Dewan presented a report on climate, forest cover and its types, vegetation, demography, socio-economic life of the people and bio-graphical importance of forest in CADC area. He mentioned that the area of CADC is comparatively small with an area of 686.25 sq. km, from which approximately 76% is forestland but, due to lack of alternative source of income majority of the population depend on jhum cultivation for their livelihood. Out of 15, 572 families (as per Village Population Register, 2022), more than 70% of the families depends on jhum cultivation and agricultural activities for their permanent livelihood.

Dg. Prabin Chakma while explaining mentioned that a project on Bamboo Plantation in the wasteland area outside Indo-Bangla Border Fencing in the western part of CADC was submitted to the Finance Commission sometime back, but the project never materialized and hence no such project on forest conservation was made again.

However, he mentioned that with the increasing population, some are eying the virgin forest in the catchment area of Palenosora, which is the only source of water left to feed the populace of Kamalanagar town area. He also mentioned, earlier, the sound of the flow of water in the rivers of the nearby area can be heard from a distant place but, now the amount of water that flows decreased so much that it has left to nothing in some parts. From this we can deduce that the forest is massively damaged though without any reliable data, he added.

Dg. Buddhankur Chakma explained about the financial status of CADC and how some Department in CADC is left to skeleton due to lack of fund and project. He mentioned that it is true that Soil & Water Conservation Department has scope to contribute for conservation of soil and water but, due to lack of fund it is simply an idle department.

He thanked Young Chakma Association (YCA), a community-based organization and Tharum, a forest-based organization for their endeavours in protecting and preserving the forest in CADC. Both the organizations support the authority as and when necessary, he added.

The meeting was concluded with a vote of thanks proposed by Prabin Chakma.

After which the team went to visit the Central Nursery at Sadarasora. They will leave for Aizawl today.

The visit to CADC was a part of their field visit to different districts of Mizoram including 3 Autonomous District Councils namely Chakma, Lai and Mara Autonomous District Council of Mizoram.
