History of the Commission:
Before the promulgation of the
'Constitution of lndia', the areas that were then called the North-East
Frontier Agency (NEFA), were administered under provisions of the Government of
lndia Act 1935. On 26 January 1950, the Ministry of External Affairs took over
administration of NEFA, relieving the Government of Assam. The Governor of
Assam, was the representative of the President of lndia, under provisions of
6th Schedule (Part B) of the Constitution of lndia.
The area was bifurcated into five Divisions; namely, Kameng Frontier Division, Subansiri Frontier Division, Lohit Frontier Division, Siang Frontier Division and Tirap Frontier Division. The administrative control of NEFA was transferred to Ministry of Home Affairs with effect from 1 August 1965. With the transfer of the Territory to the administrative control of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Divisions named above were also re-designated as Districts, and the Political Officers who were in charge of the Divisions became Deputy Commissioners.
On 21 January 1972, the Territory was reconstituted as the Union Territory of Arunachal Pradesh under the provisions of Section 7 of the North Eastern Area Re-Organisation Act 1971. From the same date, the President began administering the Territory through an Administrator (then called the Chief Administrator) appointed under the provisions of Article 259 of the Constitution. An Agency Council also came into being with effect from 21/1/1972 with an advisory function.
On 15 August 1975, the provisions of the Union territory Act 1963 were applied to the Union Territory of Arunachal Pradesh, and the former Pradesh Council became the Provisional Legislative Assembly of the Union Territory of Arunachal Pradesh. ln place of the Chief Administrator, the Administrator of the Territory came to be the Lt. Governor. A Council of Ministers was sworn in on 15 August 1975.
On 20 February 1987, the Union Territory of Arunachal Pradesh was reconstituted as the State of Arunachal Pradesh comprising the territories which immediately before that day were included in the Union Territory of Arunachal Pradesh under the Provisions of Section-3 of the Arunachal Pradesh Act - 1986.
