Yupia, Oct 28: The Arunachal Pradesh State Legal Services Authority (APSLSA) organized a one-day ‘Legal Awareness-cum-Marriage Registration’ training programme for the Marriage Officers and staffs here on Wednesday.
Chairing the programme, Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu lauded APSLSA for such initiative and said administration officers really need such kind of legal awareness orientation programme to keep themselves updated on latest legal developments.
He also emphasized that Marriage recording data should be maintained properly by the department of Economics and Statistics and same should be reflected in district handbooks also.
Adv. Raknu Koniya, gave presentation on Arunachal Pradesh Marriage Recording Act 2008 and Arunachal Pradesh Victim Compensation Scheme 2011.
Sharing her experiences of working under APSLSA, she said, “APSLSA is conducting legal awareness on such issue across the state but still knowledge on Marriage registration and its benefits are lacking in our tribal societies. We need to create more awareness and deliberations on benefits of Marriage registration for all stakeholders in the society.”
