Council to prepare a list of clans under its jurisdictions

SHILLONG, May 13: The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) will come up with a list of the different clans falling under its jurisdiction. The council will issue the Khasi tribe certificate for obtaining Scheduled Tribe (ST) certificate only to those clans whose names will figure in the list which it will prepare.
A decision towards this effect was made during a meeting of the council with the Rangbah Kur of different clans and the members of the Synjuk Ki Nongsynshar Shnong Ka Bri Hynniewtrep on Monday.
KHADC Deputy Chief Executive Member PN Syiem told reporters they have decided to come up with the list of the different clans following a detailed deliberation in the meeting.
According to him, the objective of this is to streamline the clan administration in the Khasi-Jaintia Hills region.
Syiem said the council has requested the clans to submit their details so they can be included in the list. “We will also try to find out if there are clans within the council’s jurisdiction which no longer exist or are forgotten,” he said.
Syiem said the council will hold another meeting to take every Khasi clan on board before preparing the list.
The Leader of Opposition in KHADC, Titosstarwell Chyne urged all the clans to furnish their complete details to the council at the earliest.
He said the first thing they discussed was the letter from the Ri Bhoi Deputy Commissioner who had sought a list of the clans falling under the council. He said a discussion was held also on the Khasi Hills Autonomous District (Khasi Social Custom of Lineage) Act, 1997.
He said the various clans supported the Act and they were also in agreement with the recent notification issued by the Social Welfare department on the issuance of ST certificate.
Further, Chyne said they deliberated on the Khasi Hills Autonomous District (Khasi Social Custom of Lineage) (Amendment) Bill, 2023 which was passed by the council.
According to him, they have decided to incorporate the provisions of the administration of the clans in the amendment bill.
He said the amendment bill defines that every Dorbar Kur or Seng Kur shall register itself before the office of the registrar as prescribed by the rules framed under the Act.
He said the amendment also states that the registrar of Dorbar Kur or Seng Kur shall, by a public notification, notify the recognized Dorbar Kur or Seng Kur.
