GOVERNMENT OF NAGALAND TO ESTABLISH ABHIJIT SINHA COMMITTEE

GOVERNMENT OF NAGALAND TO ESTABLISH ABHIJIT SINHA COMMITTEE

Context

The government of Nagaland has decided to establish a joint consultative committee (JCC) called Abhijit Sinha Committee. This committee involves all traditional tribal bodies and civil society organisations.

Details

  • The JCC will be headed by Home Commissioner Abhijit Sinha where he is made responsible for preparing the Register of Indigenous Inhabitants of Nagaland (RIIN)
  • It will include members from the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation, Central Nagaland Tribes’ Council, and the Tenyemie People’s Organisation.
  • In July 2019, the Nagaland government launched the RIIN, seen as a variant of Assam’s National Register of Citizens that excluded 19.06 lakh people out of about 3.3 crore applicants.
  • December 1, 1963 — the day Nagaland attained Statehood — was the cut-off date for determining the “permanent residents” of the State.
  • Apart from non-Nagas, the “outsiders” implied Nagas living in areas beyond the boundaries of Nagaland could be left out of the RIIN.
