I'm Vishal Das, a Bengali student. I'm born in Manipur state. Manipur is a land inhabited by manipuris and different tribal groups.
My father's also born here. We have been living here since 1980s. My grandfather shifted from Bangladesh (when Bangladesh was a part of India before partition) to Manipur. Since then, we are living here for more than thirty years from 1980 onwards till date . I've birth certificate, voter id, school certificates, etc.
Recently, I went to Deputy Commissioner's office for issue of a fresh ''Domicile Certificate'' since my previous domicile certificate's validity got over. The staff members refused to issue domicile, stating that no domicile can be issued to 'outsiders' (non-manipuris & non-tribals) according to orders from higher authorities ( probably ministers). I told them that I'm domicile by birth and eligible to get the certificate. They suggested me to meet ADC (Assistant Deputy Commissioner) in office. I went and met him . He also refused to issue me domicile certificate , stating that it is the order from higher authority.
What do you think so?
I'm shocked and unable to gain domicile certificate. Kindly suggest me a way.
