He was in the organizing Committee of the very first National Boscoree in India. He was the Convener of the  6th National Boscoree at Don Bosco Liluah and participated with a group of scouts at the National Boscorees at Dodballapur, Bangalore and Munnuthy in Kerala. He also organized the Scouts and Guides camp for the scouts and Guides of all Salesian Schools of Eastern India called Juboree at Don Bosco Krishnagar in the year 2003 and again at Don Bosco Siliguri in the year 2005. Currently he is getting his scout troop  at Don Bosco Siliguri ready for the forthcoming National Boscoree to be held at Don Bosco Dimapur in Nagaland in December this year.

The Medal of Merit awarded by the Governor is the highest state level award for a scout official. Along with him 109 scouts and guides from the state also received their Rajyapuraskar from the Governor. Among them eight scouts were from Siliguri and three were from Don Bosco School Siliguri itself.
