During the mid term meet of NE States branch, IADVL on 31st July’05 one resolution was passed to frame Rules and bye-laws of our branch for better dissemination of activities – both scientific and organizational. The General body nominated Dr. K. K. Das as Chairperson and Dr Kanak Ch. Talukdar as Secretary of the Constitution Committee.
