About DAC

  • To avoid duplicity we don’t take up the Govt. and Govt. aided institutions. Before taking up any schemes we check up with local Gaon Panchayats
    1. The DAC is being run by Govt. the nominated Interim Executive Council till the holding of elections and the present nine-member council took charge in April 2007.
    2. The DAC is divided into 125 numbers of Gaon Sabhas – each Gaon Sabha consisting of twenty-five members nominated by the people of the area. These Gaon Sabhas assisted by the local units of Jatiya Sangathans control all activities of the DAC within their jurisdictions.
    3. 50% of the total Annual Plan Funds are earmarked exclusively for the Gaon Sabhas based on population. Each Gaon Sabha prepares projects as per local requirements and the same is allowed to be implemented through the supervision of the territorial Executive Members after scrutiny at the Headquarters. The remaining 50% works are taken up from the Headquarters.
    4. In all cases (both Gaon Sabha sponsored and Central Projects), payments are made on receipt of the APRs of the concerned beneficiaries (in cases of supply of materials) and completion reports of the concerned Construction Committees (in cases of constructions): written report of the concerned Gaon Sabhas and the local Jatiya Sangathans and written reports of the territorial Executive Members.
    5. All the specific complaints of irregularities are settled by the Territorial Executive Members in the presence of the complainants and front of the concerned Gaon Sabhas and the public.

    The Deori Community is a Scheduled Tribe (Plains) community, numbering about three and a half lakh, scattered in medium/small villages/parts of villages/settlements in seven upper Assam Districts namely Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Sonitpur, Jorhat, Sibsagar, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia. They always lose out in the number game even at the village panchayat level. To enable them to have their say in their socio-economic affairs the Govt. of Assam under Shri Tarun Gogoi formed the Deori Autonomous Council on satellite pattern to cover the scattered population by the Assam Act No XXV of 2005- Deori Autonomous Council Act 2005 “for the social, economic, educational, ethnic and cultural advancement of the Deoris and other Scheduled Tribes Communities residing there-in.”

    AIM:

    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.
