1974 India-Bangladesh Land Boundary Agreement


On 7 May 2015, the Indian Parliament unanimously passed a bill on the operationalization of the country-border agreement with Bangladesh. All 331 members of Parliament voted in favour of the bill, which will allow the exchange of territories between the two countries, in accordance with the agreement signed in 1974 between India and Bangladesh. The territories of Assam, West Bengal, Tripura and Meghalaya are included in the bill. Neelam Deo, director of Gateway House, comments on the landmark agreement. This is a capture situation 22 in which the inhabitants of the enclave want compensation for the damage caused to their country, for which they do not have documents or legal rights by right of review. But the country is their source of livelihood and livelihood. For now, the government needs to speed up the land survey process. The country remains one of the main points of contention. Due to the laxity of the law in earlier landlocked areas, the purchase or sale of land in some cases was carried out without legal or registration documents. In other cases, the documents have either been misplaced, lost or have no value.

For example, a large enclave like Garati,[45] had an Indian enclave in Bangladesh, previously its own land registration mechanisms, but the documents today do not matter in wider society. Bangladeshi nationals of Patgram, Rangpur and Lalmonirhat continue to flow through Tin Bigha to Dahagram-Angarpota. Bikes, vans, rickshaws and small vehicles are down all day. It has become practically a tourist spot. Indian citizens travel to zero on the border with Bangladesh, take pictures and then return to the mainland. The list of enclaves was drawn up by both countries in 1997. In 2001, two border working groups were established to develop the details of the enclaves. A joint population census was conducted in May 2007.

In September 2011, India signed the additional protocol to the 1974 border agreement with Bangladesh. [18] The two nations have announced that they will exchange 162 enclaves to give the inhabitants the choice of nationality. [19] [20] [21] Researchers were informed by government officials that the land survey process would take time since it was first carried out. At the end of the process, final documents would be drafted and distributed among the inhabitants of the enclave.
