The Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) is a territorial privilege established in India according to the Memorandum of Settlement of February 10, 2003. BTC came into existence immediately after surrender of Bodo Liberation Tigers Force (BLTF) cadres. The BLTF laid down their weapons on December 6, 2003 under the leadership of Hagrama Mohilary and Hagrama was sworn in as the Chief Executive Member (CEM) on December 7, 2003. The BTC has 46 executive members each looking after a specific area of control called somisthi. The area under the BTC jurisdiction is called the Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD). BTC constitutes 70% of marginalised Tribal groups like Bodos, Rabhas, Garos, etc. who are against the hegemony of Assam government. The region falls within the geographical map of least developed region in India. The agro-based economy is the only source of livelihood of the people.
