  • 4. Current Situation According to ASDMA camp report 30 January Kokrajhar and Chirang collectively hosts 38,959 displaced population spanned across 40 IPD camps Not all camps are recognised by the local administration.• However in the last couple of weeks, there has been significant reduction in the number of camps especially in Kokrajhar district as a result of a special drive by the local administration to send back the camp residents to their respective villages with incentives like food ration for those returning back to their villages.• However, returnees who have moved out of the camps to their villages are now exposed to a further crisis - lack WASH facilities; of livelihood opportunities and rebuilding of shelter. The conflict has damaged most of their movable and immovable assets and livestocks; and they have also missed the critical rice planting season. Moreover, they don’t have any stocked food grains as well.• A large number of IDPs are still unsure if they will receive their rehabilitation package from the district administration since they do not possess proper land records. An acute uncertainty exists for these families. Page 4
