Executive Committee, CADC decides to appoint the successful candidates for BAT courses on fixed pay basis to qualify them as in-service candidates

Kamalanagar, 05 July, 2019:  The Executive Committee, Chakma Autonomous District Council in its meeting held today decided to depute the successful candidates of the examination for training in Agriculture and allied subjects notified vide notification No.A.12032/1/2009-2010/CADC(G)/Part-I dt.28/06/2019 to undergo Basic Agriculture Training (BAT) courses at ITC, Hnathial as in-service personnel.

The recourse has been necessitated due to receipt of a request letter (L/No.B.13017/4/2018-DTE(AGR-R&E)/39 dt.2/07/2019) from the Directorate of Agriculture (Research & Extension), Government of Mizoram to select in-service candidates to undergo BAT courses at ITC, Hnahthial for the Session 2019-20121.

Earlier, CADC has conducted an examination to select fresh candidates for undergoing training for Agriculture Demonstrator, Horticulture Demonstrator and Sericulture Demonstrator the result of which was published on 28th June 2019. Seven candidates were selected to avail training courses during the session 2019-2021 while 8 candidates were declared under waiting list for the session 2020-22. The Examination was conducted to select pre-service candidates in mind. However, as the matter of pre-service candidates was intimated at a very short notice by the state government it could not be pursued and on the other hand CADC could not afford to lose the opportunity due to acute shortage of technical hand at present. CADC anyhow decided to continue with the process of the examination notified to select the meritorious candidates. To qualify the successful candidates for the BAT training course under in-service category it decided to appoint them on fixed pay basis.

48th CADC Day Observed

Kamalanagar, 29 April 2019: Completion of 47 years of formation of Chakma Autonomous District Council was celebrated today at Kamalanagar with a ceremonial programme. The Indian National flag and the CADC flag were hoisted in the premises of the CADC secretariat by Dangu Rasik Mohan Chakma, CEM, CADC in the presence of a gathering comprising of CADC councilors, former leaders and CADC employees.

The programme was started with offering of tribute by the CEM, CADC to the Chakma leaders who had pioneered the autonomy movement of the Chakmas in Mizoram.

Dangu Rasik Mohan Chakma addressed the gathering signifying the day. He spoke how the portion of the land lived by the Chakmas of Mizoram was once a part of the independent Chakma Kingdom “Chadigang”. He remembered the Chakma leaders like Dangu Krishto Mohan Chakma, Dangu Atul Chandra Chakma, Dangu Hari Krsisto Chakma, Dangu Baneswar Chakma, Dangu Mediya Chakma and Dangu Satya Priyo Dewan who struggled to restore the autonomy once enjoyed by the Chakmas in the form of CADC.

He appreciated the political farsightedness of the then Chakma leaders who despite odds and unfavourable conditions have harbored the crave and spirit for autonomy.

Elaborating further into the past he said, “The Chakmas too became victim of British colonization just like rest of the country and subsequently, took part in the Indian freedom struggle. Unfortunately, the Chakmas of “Chadigang” could not be part of the dominion of India despite their effort.”

He finally urged the people to ask the self of how one is contributing to the development and progress of CADC and to wean our incessant expectation for benefit out of CADC. This attitude if adopted, he added, there will be sea change and nothing can stop us from transforming into a powerful community.
