Kamalanagar, 13 October 2016: Amulya Chandra Debnath, the Deputy Secretary of Chakma Autonomous District Council passed away this morning at Silchar Medical College at 1:45 am due to cardiac arrest. He was in Silchar for his routine visit to attend the Durga Puja festival and to get some official works of CADC done at the income tax office. It was learnt that he called up Dg. Chandra Bikash Chakma, Office Superintendent, General Administration Department, a colleague, a few days back and informed that he was diagnosed to have been infected with typhoid. He is said to have told the medicine he was prescribed caused him adverse reaction. His last remains were cremated this evening at Silchar.
Dg. Kali Kumar Tongchangya, CEM, CADC and Dg. Dayal Chandra Chakma, Chairman, CADC sent condolence messages to his bereaved family members at Silchar. Earlier condolence service was offered in the premises of CADC Secretariat and the day was declared a holiday in his honour.
He served the District Council under various positions till he retired this year on 31/01/2016. However, his service was extended for a year while considering his invaluable service worthy of extension. The instance was, first ever, in the history of the Council. He joined the District Council during the first elected term of CADC in 11/05/1977 as a typist when Dg. Nilo Muni Chakma was the CEM. Subsequently he held the posts of Steno-II, Assistant-cum-Steno, Office Superintendent, Under Secretary and Deputy Secretary. His entire service life spans over all the elected councils so far witnessed. His untimely demise is a great loss to the District Council. A repository of information on the affairs of the council since almost the time of its creation has been lost. If he would have lived beyond his full retirement he may have worked on a book about the history of the Chakma ADC.
He served like a true employee of an institution. He lived up to the obligation of a government servant maintaining official secrecy with whoever he happened to work throughout his service life.
He was an avid learner. His zeal to improve himself is evident from the fact that he completed his graduation and Post-Graduation while in service from IGNOU.
He was the first of the three children of Shri Chandra Mohan Debnath and Smt. Priyobala Debnath born on 2/5/1956. He is survived by wife Smt. Gauri Debnath and daughters Smt. Arpita Debnath and Miss Ankita Debnath.
