ONGC lights up Karbongpara village

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Jan 06, 2018 : Chairman of TTTAADC Dr. Ranjit Debbarma today dedicated ONGC Model Village-Karbongpara under Champabari ADC village of West Tripura district in presence of ONGC’s Director (On-shore) VP Mahawar and ONGC Tripura Asset Manager GK Singha Roy.

While speaking on the occasion, the Chairman lauded the role of ONGC Tripura Asset for adopting such a village which houses 31 families of Karbong tribe, a diminishing indigenous community.

Dr. Debbarma urged the ONGC authority to convert the brick soiling road into black topping road for boost the connectivity.

In his speech, Mahawar shared his experience when he walked down to Karbongpara, a tribal hamlet around 4.5 km from Champaknagar. “Today, I am happy to see that some facilities- toilets, community halls, drinking water, drinking water, irrigation facilities, goat raring and piggery have been created under the ONGC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities”, he said.

“I found people belonging to Karbong, a sub-tribe of Halam community are usually shy of any outsider. When I visited the place way back in 2014, I entered into a house but inmates tried to skip me. Somehow, I could manage to sit with them and revealed that we want to do something for betterment of the village”, he recalled in an emotional voice.

Mahawar promised that ONGC would continue to support such programme initiated by a tribal NGO under the guidance of Tribal Engineers’ Society.

The Korbong community is well known as a vanishing tribe of Tripura and today has only 31 families in that village. They are very much poor and one of the weaker sections of tribal community of the state. The most vital point is that there is no government employee in this village and no one who has completed Class-X examination when the project was started on May 14, 2016.
