‘Khunai Yokhatpi Imasing’ is awarded to those women who gave birth to high number of children and have the ability to raise them properly as well.

For the development of human resource of the state which is vital for inclusive growth, “Leingakki Maheiloisangsing gi Maheiroising” award is also conferred to four students. The selected students of the award are Lairenjam Linthoingambi, daughter of Ibomcha and Memchoubi of Khongampat, Purnima Moirangthem, daughter of Surchand and Jamuna of Khangabok Meisnam Leikai, Yengkhom Shasikanta, son of Gunachandra and Uma of Singjamei Oinam Thingel and Nebita Maibam, daughter of Oken and Debala of Irengband Makha Leikai.
The students were honoured with certificate and cash of Rs. 5000.
Presenting her key note address, president, SUO, W. Luwang Leima said that the number of indigenous population is decreasing day by day. According to 2001 census report, the number of indigenous population of the State decreased to great extent when compared to other communities. It is high time to think of some pragmatic solution unless the indigenous populace will be disappeared after some year, she said.
She stated that encouraging women for more child births would be one of the most feasible options to increase indigenous population. With this belief, IKAL have been presenting the award to those women who give high number of child birth since the inception of IKAL in 2011 and SUO is collaborating from this year.
One of the invitees, retired director of medical directorate, Shamurailatpam Surchandra Sharma said that, according to a survey report conducted in three private hospitals of the state, the rate of delivering baby through caesarean section and conducting hysterectomy is quite high as out of 10 women, eight women undergo these two process. This is also another factor to reduce indigenous population. Therefore massive awareness on ill effect of these two processes is need of hour.
