About DAC
Welcome to Deori Community (About DAC)

The Deori Community, a Scheduled Tribe (Plains) community, has long been an integral part of the cultural fabric of Assam. With a population of around three and a half lakh, the Deoris are distributed across various parts of seven upper Assam Districts, namely Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Sonitpur, Jorhat, Sibsagar, Dibrugarh, and Tinsukia. Despite their significant presence, the community has historically faced challenges in making their voices heard in decision-making processes that affect their socio-economic development.

In recognition of the need to facilitate the meaningful participation of the Deori Community in their affairs, the Government of Assam, under the leadership of Shri Tarun Gogoi, took a momentous step by establishing the Deori Autonomous Council. Enacted as the Assam Act No XXV of 2005, the Deori Autonomous Council Act 2005 was a watershed moment for the community, signaling a commitment to championing their social, economic, educational, ethnic, and cultural advancements.

Our Vision

The aim of the DAC is the empowerment of the people by enabling them to take part in all the decision-making activities, decentralization of power down to the grass-root level by forming Gaon Sabhas, equitable distribution of funds based on village-wise population for inclusive socio-economic advancement and peaceful co-existence with all the other neighboring communities. We have not included any other community in the DAC, as all the other communities either have their ethnic councils or are in the process of having one and prefer to stay there. On the other hand, we have included every Deori community family of Assam in the DAC. We don't have tension with our neighboring communities. We believe that all the Deori communities should work together for the betterment of our society. We are trying to build a strong and unified Deori community through our collective efforts. We want to create a harmonious and vibrant Deori society.

Our Mission

The mission of the Deori Autonomous Council is to promote and protect the rights, culture, and identity of the Deori people. It aims to achieve socio-economic development, educational empowerment, and political autonomy for the Deori community. The Council works towards ensuring the overall well-being and upliftment of the Deori population by implementing various developmental programs and policies.

Our Values

Having an autonomous council for the Deori community can provide a platform for self-governance and decision-making, allowing the Deori people to address their specific needs and concerns. It can also promote cultural preservation and empowerment within the community. However, challenges may arise in terms of resource allocation, balancing the interests of different groups within the community, and ensuring accountability and transparency in the council's functioning.

About Deori Autonomous Council under Govt of Assam, The Deori Autonomous Council is responsible for various functions and responsibilities under the Government of Assam. These include promoting and preserving the culture, language, and heritage of the Deori community and ensuring the community's overall development and welfare. The council also has the authority to make decisions regarding land rights, education, healthcare, and other important aspects that directly impact the lives of the Deori people.

The DAC is funded by the State Govt. of Assam under the Tribal Sub Plan (TSP). Fund allocation to DAC was very little till 2005. In 2005, the Govt entered into an agreement with the agitating tribal organizations and it was decided to enhance the budget allocation to DAC. Since then fund allocation has been gradually increased, although the amount always falls short of meeting huge demands and needs. Funds allocated to DAC since 2005-10 are given below. Funds allocated during 2010-15 :
