The Assam government on Monday decided to reduce the minimum age for becoming a panchayat head to 25 years from the existing 35 years.

The decision was taken during a cabinet meeting, a release from the Chief Minister’s Office said.

However, the norm of having a maximum of two children for the same post will remain, it said.

The cabinet also decided to enact a new legislation — Assam Private Placement Agencies for Recruitment Regulation Act — to safeguard the interest of youths working outside the state.

Besides, the eviction drive to clear the community lands from encroachments will be carried out under the amended Assam Land Revenue Regulation Act, 1886, instead of the ongoing exercise under a Gauhati High Court order, the release said.

The state government has planned to raise the authorised capital in Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL) to Rs. 5,000 crore from the existing Rs. 250 crore, the CMO said.

The cabinet also decided to raise the remuneration of the members of the development councils to Rs. 25,000 a month from Rs. 5,000, while that of the chief executive members to Rs. 45,000 from Rs. 16,000.
