By Our Correspondent

Agartala, August 12, 2019 : The final date for repatriation of Reang refugees are yet to be intimated to the local administration but the Kanchanpur sub-divisional administration is keeping all necessary works updated as the last date for sending them back to their ancestral home at Mizoram, that is, September 30 is drawing closer.

The biggest task is preparing the Aadhar card and opening of bank accounts is going on in full swing. Additional staff from the district administration has been deployed in all the six refugee camps while four or five bank managers has engaged themselves for opening of each family.

Abhedananda Baidya, Sub-Divisional magistrate said the ork for issuing Aadhar card and opening of bank accounts are progressing satisfactorily and he is confident of completing the task by the end of this month.

Opening of bank accounts are most important as the union home ministry has promised to pay compensation to each family and that will be done through the banks only.

What is most noticeable is that the Reang refugees who earlier very much against repatriation and even used to become arrogant to prevent any such attempt but this time they are showing enthusiasm and co-operating with the authority.

It may be mentioned that the union home ministry has taken a tough stand said all relief will be stopped after the dateline is expired. It may be recalled that the Reangs crossed over to Tripura in 1998 from Mamith district of Mizoram following some communal disturbances and since then they are staying here.
