The ASDC signed a MoU on April 1, 1995, a tripartite agreement with the Centre and the State government in which the state had agreed to transfer 30 departments to the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC). Though the departments have been transferred, it has not been fully implemented.

The president of ASDC Youth Front, Premson Bey said due to the Autonomous State struggle led by ASDC and its allies the KSA and Karbi Nimso Chingthur Asong, they signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on April 1, 1995, in which the signatories are leaders of ASDC, KSA, Dimasa Students Union and NC Hills Students Federation.

Subsequently, the State government has passed a resolution to delegate executive powers to KAAC of 30 departments. Though the 30 departments have been delegated to the KAAC, the implementing part remains, Bey said.

Bey further said, “As per the MoU agreement education from primary up to higher secondary level has been entrusted to the Council. The Council has the authority to make laws and constitute an education board up to higher secondary level. KAAC should do it. Even the syllabus and conduct of TET examinations and appointment process can be done by the KAAC itself.”
