Fire guts 39 houses at Hapoli
CM expresses concern over frequent fire
ZIRO, Dec 10: In yet another fire accident, 39 houses were burnt to ashes at Paraline,
Hapoli yesterday night. The fire occurred a day after a boy lost his life and 50
houses were burned down at Daporijo.
Two fire tenders were rushed to the spot immediately after the fire broke out at
around 11 pm and it took almost one and half hour to douse the inferno.
The cause of the fire is still not known but investigation was on.
Ziro which witnesses fire accidents almost every year does not have enough fire fighting
equipments. In all the cases, it’s been the citizens who have come to help themselves
in absence of adequate fire tenders.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki expressed concern over frequent occurrence of
fire accidents, especially in Lower Subansiri and Upper Subansiri districts.
The chief minister directed the district administrations of both the district to
immediately take remedial as well as precautionary measures to avoid similar incidents
in future. He also directed them to make spot visits to assess the quantum of damage
and also to ensure whether there have been any unreported human casualties.
Tuki, who is currently in Kolkata attending a meeting convened by Union Finance Minister
Pranab Mukherjee with all Chief Ministers and Finance Ministers of Eastern India
states, feared that there is an increased chance of such mishaps during winter. He
called for extra precautionary measures on part of the administration.
The chief minister also mourned the reported demise of a minor boy in the inferno
at Daporijo and announced an ex-gratia of Rs 1 lakh to the next of kin of the deceased.
He also sought detailed report regarding the causes and damages caused by both the
mishaps in Daporijo and Ziro.
Local MLA and Parliamentary Secretary Padi Richo, general administration and SP of
the district today visited the spot and immediate relief materials were provided
to the victims. Each victim was provided a blanket, Rs.2000 and 4 bundles of CGI
sheet by Richo and Rs.2000 by Lower Subansiri deputy commissioner. Meanwhile, Apatani
Youth Association (AYA) rued the insufficiency of fire tender at Lower Subansiri.

Tuki stresses on micro-credit for farmers
Kolkata, Dec 10: Chief Minister Nabam Tuki today urged the Union Finance Ministry
to stress upon the banking institutions to initiate steps to expand and strengthen
the SHG bank linked system in Arunachal Pradesh while underlining the importance
of micro credit as more than 80% of farming communities are marginal farmers with
little access to credit.
Speaking during the meeting convened by Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for
Chief Ministers of East Zone states here today, Tuki urged that SHGs engaged in the
farming and non-farming micro level enterprises should be increased to reach 1 lakh
by 2015 and 2 lakh by 2020. To achieve this target, he said credit needs to be provided
on easy terms and conditions and low interest rates to the needy people. While informing
that performance of PSBs in housing sector is Rs. 33.2 crore in 2009-10 and Rs. 53.8
crore which is about 62% growth over the previous year, Tuki, however, expressed
concern over the position of Private Sector banks, which he said is dismal at only
Welcoming the Government of India’s Package for doubling the flow of credit to agriculture
and allied activities announced in June, 2004, the Chief Minister said in this regard
the agriculture credit flow in Arunachal has improved from Rs. 2966 lakh in 2008-09
to 7541 lakh in 2010-11. As per the Agricultural census 2001, there are 1,06,783
land holdings in the State. As against this, 16,146 Kisan Credit Cards (KCC) amounting
to Rs. 36.04 crore have been sanctioned as on 30th June, 2011 by the various banks
in the State. This accounts for 15.12% leaving a gap of 90,637 land holdings.
Tuki, meanwhile, appealed flexibility in banking norms for facilitating education
loans to students of the state. He said every year many meritorious students from
poor economic background are not able to pursue higher studies especially in technical
fields due to lack of funds.
“Both PSBs and Private Sector Banks are not encouraging adequately the students in
this regard due to procedural difficulties. I request you to kindly impress upon
the bankers to be more flexible in extending loans under Education Loans Scheme,”
he appealed while also calling for flexibility in extending loans to weaker sections
and minority communities of the state.
Another concern Tuki highlighted was the state’s Credit-Deposit (CD) ratio, which
has declined from 26.27% (March, 2007) to 22.08% in March, 2011, well below the all
India CD ratio of 75.5%. He called for all out efforts by banks to improve the CD
ratio by resorting to fresh lending in agriculture and other priority sectors. Citing
negligible presence of industries in the state, he informed that under the New Industrial
Policy provision has been made to provide concessions to attract entrepreneurs. In
this regard, he said the State will require liberal funding including credit from
financial institutions at a concessional rate of interest and for this, GOI may issue
suitable guideline to the banks.
Tuki also welcomed the Business Correspondent and other models with appropriate technology
backup to be implemented by banks. There are only 124 branches of different banks
in urban and rural areas in the State with inadequate staff strength. There are 99
Blocks in Arunachal Pradesh. RBI has identified 34 unbanked blocks in the State
and of this, 10 unbanked blocks have been allocated to SBI and AP Rural Banks. Now,
remaining 31 nos ( 24 unbanked blocks as per RBI + 7 additional blocks) of unbanked
blocks which need to be covered in a phased manner. In pursuance of the decision
taken in the SLBC meeting held on 29th June, 2011, the notification for opening the
bank branches in another 6 unbanked blocks was issued by the State Govt. and communicated
to RBI for calling bids. However, the proposed coverage by using the Business Correspondent
and other models is yet to be decided in the case of Arunachal Pradesh.
As regards to the MGNREGA payments and State Govt subsidy through banking system,
Tuki said in case of 32 Government schemes in operation being funded by Government
of India and under which subsidies are to be given directly to the beneficiaries,
the State Government is examining the matter for electronic benefit transfer to the
beneficiaries’ bank account. However, as there are 31 unbanked blocks, poor telecommunication
network and inadequate facilities of post offices, the State Government is facing
problem to implement/operationalize the schemes by Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT).
To ease recovery of dues the Chief Minister suggested that while sanctioning the
loan, the banker should make it very clear that the loans are required to be repaid
in time and should not be confused with other subsidy schemes.
“So there is a need to have awareness amongst the borrowers through the officials
by dissemination of information. The State Government is willing to extend support
and help the banks in recovery drives,” he assured.
On the likelihood of power developers to approach banks for loans in implementing
hydro projects in the state, Tuki said the government is processing all these projects
in a single window clearance. However, the statutory clearances like forest clearance,
environment clearances are being given by the Ministry of Environment & Forest, Govt
of India, where some delays do take place. The state government is pursuing with
the Center from time to time to devise systems to give timely clearances, he added.
Delving upon a very distinct feature of loans, Tuki said the unique customary land
tenure system in the North Eastern Hilly States requires special dispensation for
land based collateral for extending credit by the banks to the people.
“I would, therefore, like to reiterate that collaterals should not be required for
banks extending agricultural loans up to Rs. 50,000. Land Possession Certificate
(LPC) may be taken by banks where available for establishing proof of right to cultivation
of the land. Where LPC is not available, a letter of comfort or certificate from
the group/local tribal bodies/farmers clubs/Village Development Board Statement (VDBS)
regarding the borrower’s inalienable right to cultivate land may be taken.
“For loans above Rs. 50,000 and up to Rs. 5 lakh, where borrower has an established
track record and projected cash flows are sufficient, banks should not insist on
land collateral if there is an inalienable right on such land. For Agriculture loan
above Rs.5 lakh, where land is not available as collateral, the banks, financial
institutions should consider providing credit enhancement through partial risk sharing
instruments or conditional guarantees. It is requested that the RBI and banking institutions
issue suitable guidelines to the banks institutions considering the peculiar situation
of NE States in this regard,” he suggested.
Tuki also pointed out that due to shortage of currency chests in the state, the government
is not able to make its sanctions Sub-Treasuries functional. The matter has been
taken up with RBI to provide currency chests to the concerned bank branches of SBI.
He further stressed the need to have a Foreign Currency Exchange Facility at-least
at Itanagar which is the State Capital.
In order to cope up with the unemployment problem, Tuki said there is a need to set
up training centre and job recruitment centre at Itanagar to give job opportunity
to local youths.
“A special recruitment drive may be organized to fill up the group C and D posts
reserved for ST candidates in the banking sectors. The State Government is willing
to provide all support on the above initiative,” he suggested.
The meeting was also attended by Chief Ministers of East Zone states, senior officials
of Central and State Governments, Deputy Governor of RBI, Chairman of NABARD and
CMDs of different banks.

people of Ziro and Daporijo where fire incident caused massive loss of properties
and loss of one valuable life. In a release AAPSU expressed shock over administrative

Unsung heroes of Anglo-Adi wars commemorated
DENKI (KEBANG), Dec 10: The two-day centenary celebration of Poju Mimak-- the 4th
and last Anglo-Abor War -- ended at Dengki of Kebang-Pogleg village, 75 km from Pasighat
The centenary celebration was organized under the aegis of Paator Gumin Heritage
Preservation and Research Foundation providing a perfect platform to commemorate
the unsung ‘Adi Heros’. The Adi people of Siang belt paid tribute to the unsung ‘Adi
Heros’, who had sacrificed their lives in fighting against the Britishers in various
Anglo- Adi Wars lasted from 1858 to 1911.
The Kebang village had spearheaded the resistance of Adis against British penetration
into Adi land in the Siang Valley from year 1858 to 1911. The Anglo-Adi War was manifested
into four wars namely, Bitbor Mimak (1858), Bongal Mimak (1859), Nijom Mimak (1894)
and Poju Mimak(1911), during freedom struggle of India.
Kebang village came into existence in the middle of the 18th century and was established
by Karging-Mennyang (Komsing-Riu). It was not chiefly responsible for Williamson’s
murder, but its reputation for truculence and fighting power, appears to dominate
the whole of the Minyong tribe. Now, the villagers of Kebang villages fragmented
into three tiny parts namely- Kebang-Radha, Kebang –Sole, Kebang (Poglek).
The great Poju Mimak (war) between the Abor Expeditionary force led by British Major-General
H. Bower and the gallant fighters of Adis led by Kebang village virtually came to
an end with the burning down of Kebang village on December-9, 1911.
Dengki of Kebang (Poglek) village, located at 75 kilometer west of Pasighat is amid
hilly terrain with lush green vegetation and orchards at right bank of mighty Siang
river. It was earlier at the confluence of Yembung and Siang Rivers, where the Britisher
had established their permanent headquarters of the Abor Expeditionary Force on December-10,
1911, after burning down of Kebang village.
The last Anglo-Adi war took place after Noel Williamson and his soldiers were murdered
at Komsing on March 31,1911 by the Adi warriors led by Matmur Jamoh.
Member of Parliament for East-Arunachal HPC Nining Ering attended the concluding
programme today. He visited the some historical place across Siang river.
The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, who attended the inaugural day programme on December
9, visited Goying Liidung, a huge monolith stone at Radha, place where the first
Anglo-Abor war took place in 1858. It is said that on 26th March 1858, the stone
was fired at by British forces led by Captain Lowther thinking that Adi warriors
of Kebang village were hiding behind the stone.

& II but public leaders of 12 villages under Namphai-II rejected the proposal for
inclusion of their villages in the new setup and expressed their desire to continue
under Miao circle. With their rejection to merge, Namphai circle will now consist
of only 7 local villages namely Old Champoo; New Khimyung; Old Plone; Neirong; Neotan;
New Plone and Namphainong and 5 blocks under Dharmapur.
