The General Body Meeting of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's Central
Tibetan Relief Committee (CTRC) was presided over by the committee's
vice-chairman Prof Samdhong Rinpoche on Wednesday (29 December) at
Gangchen Kyishong.

The Tibetan settlement officers in the north Indian state of Himachal
Pradesh, who are members of the general body of the CTRC, attended the
meeting. His Holiness the Dalai Lama's Central Tibetan Relief Committee
was registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860, in 1981.

The Himachal Pradesh government had made recent amendments to the
Societies Registration Act, 1860, in conformity with the provisions of
The Himachal Pradesh Societies Registration Act 2006.

Accordingly, the CTRC as a registered society is required to make
amendments in its Memorandum and Rules and Regulations with the
provisions of HP Societies Registration Act, 2006, Mr Ngodup Dorjee,
Executive Secretary of the CTRC, told Tibet TV.

The governing body of the CTRC made the amendments during its meeting on
27 December 2010, which were tabled and ratified in yesterday's general
body meeting, Mr Dorjee said.

The governing body of the CTRC has asked all our general body members to
make necessary amendments in their respective societies' rules and
regulations/bye-laws with the provisions of the HP Societies
Registration Act, 2006, he said.

Some of the new amendments made in the objectives of the society were
(1) Promotion of the social welfare (2) Promotion of rural development
and (3) Promotion of religious or charitable purpose including
establishment of funds for welfare of military orphans, welfare of
political sufferers and welfare of the like.

Other ancillary objectives include (1) initiate, conduct and assist

nutrition to children and adults especially amongst the poorer and more
backward sections (3) promote agricultural practices and projects for

need is most felt within the Tibetan community and give them access to
materials about the socio-economic conditions of Tibetan refugees in exile.
