Tripura ADC urges state govt to get Guv's approval for recognition of customary laws of tribals

Tripura ADC urges state govt to get Guv's approval for recognition of customary laws of tribals

Agartala, Nov 23 (UNI) Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (ADC) has sought initiative from the state government to get approval of the Governor for recognition of customary laws of Chakma, Tripuri, Reang, Mog and Murasingh communities, which have already been codified.

The Chief Executive Member (CEM) of ADC Radhacharan Debbarma today said that they had sent the proposal to state government for its views relating to the customary laws in the light of IPC and CrPC. But so far nothing has come to ADC and as a result no decision has been taken in this regard.

The matter relating to the customary laws of Tripura, Mog and Murasingh communities have been lying pending in Raj Bhawan. “We have requested the state government to see that the approval from the Governor is received as early as possible,” he said.

He maintained that customary laws were necessary for preserving and protecting the indigenous people’s social traditions, rituals and culture. The unified civil court and laws have the jurisdiction as usual like other parts of the country but customary laws in tribal society has the provisions to settle the issues in civil nature and tribal society accept and respect it equally like other laws of the land, Debbarma stated.
