Green Book (Chatrel) 

Tibetans contributing to Chatrel are issued a Green Book. Over the years, this book has, in effect, become the passport of the exiled Tibetans to claim their rights from the CTA. Also, in the future, it will become a base for claiming Tibetan citizenship. Today, it is used for school admission, school or university scholarships, and employment within the exiled community. Payment of the voluntary contribution is a condition for gaining voting rights in parliamentary elections.

The existence of Chatrel symbolizes the Tibetan people’s recognition of CTA as their legitimate representative. Chatrel payment exhibits Tibetan people’s support for CTA’s financial needs until Tibet regains freedom. Chatrel fund is an important source of revenue for CTA and it goes towards supporting various projects and activities benefiting the exiled Tibetan community.
