YUPIA, Oct 28: The Arunachal Pradesh State Legal Services Authority (APSLSA) organized a one-day legal awareness-cum- marriage registration programme here on Wednesday.

Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu lauded the APSLSA for the initiative and said that “administrative officers really need awareness to stay updated on the latest legal developments.”

He also emphasized that marriage registration data should be maintained properly by the department of Economics and Statistics and the same should be reflected in district handbooks as well.
