Delivering the keynote address of the observance, KCB secretary S Sanjit said that before the establishment of the board there was much confusion and ambiguity on the date for various practices of customary rituals by the people of Manipur.

However, since the establishment of the board, almost all the differences and confusion of the date of the cultural practice by the people of Manipur, especially Meetei, has been sorted out through scientific findings by consulting with astrology experts and scholars, he said.

Now KCB has made the undisputed calendar available to all the Meetei settling outside the state, he added.
