Making a mention about why the need for Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy 2014 was felt, Mr Topgyal said that Tibetans have been receiving generous timely assistance and guidance from the people and government of India but there lacked uniformity in providing these assistance to the Tibetan refugees in different states of the country. He said that the Tibetan Exile Government is dependent on the economic policy of their host country and the mobilisation and management of their resources depend on the people and government of India. He said that in order to ensure long time sustainability of Tibetan camps and ensure uniform level of assistance in the country the Central Tibetan Relief Committee in cognisant with the Government of India has decided to provide common guidelines regarding facilities to be given to the Tibetan Refugees across the states in India through this policy. “We are not here to settle permanently and the day we leave we’ll handover all our lands with infrastructure to GOI as a token of Gratitude,” quipped Mr. Topgyal expressing optimism over positive changes to take place in Tibet.

He urged Mr. Topgyal to strictly restrict Tibetans from selling their lands. He directed CRO and ACR Leh to carry a joint survey to telly and authenticate their land revenue records to make clear cut demarcation of lands that belong to Tibetans. He instructed ACR to allot alternative land measuring 32 kanal 1 marla for the Tibetans as substitute for the land taken for the STP in Agling.
Mr. Topgyal requested for schemes for strengthening Changthang settlement in Ladakh for Tibetans. On this Dr. Dawa urged the Tibetan Government to ensure no migration of Tibetan Nomads from Changthang to Leh which he said is creating problems for the local administration.
