Estd. In 3rd January, 1959 the All Assam OBC Association is a pioneer organization of the OBC people of Assam. This organization is a non-political democratic, Secular organisation registered under the society Registration act XXI 1860 and recognised by the state Govt. of Assam vide Memo No. TAD/MISC/275/296 5th January, 1994. Since its inception the organisation dedicated for the overall development of the OBC people. We hope organisation will cross the rubicon to meet our aspirations.
Our Motto is to educate our future generation. We believe Education will remove one’s superstitions and then will come to know what they are because when educated agitation will come it will intensify the urge of unification. Unification will remove all the barricades of success.
Our responsibility is to take necessary step for the upliftment of the OBC people. Under Article 340 of the constitution it is obligatory for the Govt. to promote the welfare of the OBCs. Govt. of Assam has authorised us to issue caste certificate to the OBC people. It has many uses such as getting admission in schools or colleges to appear competitive exams, to get scholarships, to get Govt. Jobs under reserved category and to get Govt. subsides etc.
Kaka Kalelkar Commission of the first National Commission of backward classes in his report submitted on 30th March, 1994 has identified 2399 communities as OBC and 837 communities as MOBC for the whole state. The Commission suggested some measures for betterment and uplifment. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs have instructed all the state Governments requesting them to render every possible assistance and to give all reasonable facilities to the people who come within the category of backward class in accordance with existing list and also to such others who in their opinion deserve to be considered socially and educationally backward in the existing circumstances.
It is regrettable that Assam Govt. had not taken any measure in 1st and 2nd five year plan. In this circumstances the leaders of OBC community decided to form in this organisation to look after and to take adequate measure for upliftment of the OBC people of Assam.
It is a history that on 3rd January 1959 the All Assam OBC Association was formed at a conference held at Dibrugarh Natya Mandir with Girindra Nath Gogoi as President and Sonaram Phukan as General Secy.
