    Dhaka, Aug 20 (bdnews24.com)—Bangladesh and India have begun signing Border Strip Maps after around 54 years, officially recognising the 4156-kilometre international border.

    The signing started at a progamme at the Department of Land Records and Surveys (DLRS) in Dhaka on Saturday, two weeks before the visit of Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh.

    Bangladesh high commissioner in New Delhi Tariq Ahmad Karim and Indian high commissioner in Dhaka Rajeet Mitter signed some of 1,149 maps for five sectors.

    The border demarcation team chief, joint home secretary (political) Kamal Uddin Ahmed said Bangladesh had made half of the maps and India the remainder.

    "The maps were finalised after scrutiny by representatives of the two countries," he said.

    Kama lUddin said the two high commissioners would sign eight copies of each map.

    Though the border had verbal recognition, it will get legal base once the maps are signed.

    A 6.5-kilometre-long part of the border, including some adversely possessed lands, is yet to be demarcated.

    The representatives of the two countries would finalise the maps for this part soon, Kamal Uddin said.

    The demarcation of border between India and Pakistan started in 1947. A preliminary draft on the demarcation had been signed in 1956. The process, however, stalled later.

    After East Pakistan had become Bangladesh in 1971, then the prime minister Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his Indian counterpart Indira Gandhi signed a Land Border Deal in 1974 and the demarcation started. The process had stopped again.

    The issue came to the fore during prime minister Sheikh Hasina's India visit last year.

    Survey of Bangladesh conducted the assessment in the Chittagong Hill Tracts while DLRS in the remaining areas.

    DLRS made a total of 628 maps for 2,262 kilometres of Bangladesh-Paschim Banga border, 269 maps for 874 kilometres of Bangladesh-Tripura border, 93 maps for 264-kilometre Bangladesh-Assam border and 139 maps for 436-kilometre Bangladesh-Meghalaya border.

    Survey of Bangladesh made 20 maps for 320-kilometre Bangladesh-Mizoram border, surveyor general of the organisation Brig Gen Mohammad Mominul Haque said.

    Home minister Shahara Khatun, land minister Rezaul Karim Hira, foreign minister Dipu Moni, state minister for land Mostafizur Rahman, state minister for home Shamsul Hoque Tuku, home secretary Abdus Sobhan Shikder, foreign secretary Mohamed Mijarul Quayes, land secretary Mokhlesur Rahman and Border Guard Bangladesh director general Anwar Hossain were also present at the programme.

    Maj Gen Girish Kumar, head of the boundary cell of the Indian external affairs ministry, and M Subaidu, counsellor of the political wing of the Indian high commission in Dhaka, also attended the programme.

    Terming the signing 'historic', the ministers said the settlement of the border would help further develop relations between the two countries.

    SETTLEMENT OF ENCLAVE ISSUE IN MANMOHAN VISIT

    Kamal Uddin said the dispute over enclaves would be settled during prime minister Manmohan Singh's Sept 6-7 visit to Dhaka.

    Singh would sign a deal with his Bangladeshi counterpart Hasina during the visit to swap enclaves.

    There are 111 Indian enclaves with 37,000 people living inside Bangladesh while 51 with 14,000 inside Paschim Banga.

    Several issues like water sharing and land dispute would be hopefully settled during Manmohan's visit.

    Not enough. Stopping Illegal immigrations is most important. By Next year fencing will be completed (Hopefully). Few more steps need to be taken.

    On Diplomacy Part: we are keeping her (Haseena) in good humor so that Pakistan won't able to Play PAN-MUSLIM Carrd. Still, I feel more concrete things need to be done. Also, Deport back Millions of Illegal Bangladeshi. They are threat for our Social, Economical and Security wise.

    We in Bangladesh are not unaware of such day dreamers existing in India. Fortunately they aren't many. Peace and happiness among peoples, and friendship among neighbors can only be real (as opposed to insincere) if such idiots are kept in leash.

    In this border deal, the overall area of Bangla desh will increase by 47 sq kms. It means India has handed over its territory to solve the problem. It is shocking that even after that their are some people in BD who blame the Govts of both the countries.

    1.The Indo-BD border issue is too complex to be solved ever. The wily, crooked, crafty, cunning Radcliffe and Mountbatten had ensured that this remains an issue for ever.

    2. Feroz-Nehru deal, Mujib-Indira pact and many other agreements, commitments, etc have remained unfulfilled because of practical difficulties on ground. There is a BD tea garden which has the border running through it. Local people do not seem to take notice of this. There are homes in Hilli where kitchen and external lavatory has fallen into India. You must have heard of enclaves. But have you heard of enclaves within enclaves?

    3. It is doubtful if this agreement will actually be implemented in the end. The ruling party has become quite unpopular and the opposition BNP has stated its opposition to this deal.

    4. These bastard (not an abuse, but a biological truth) Angrej have gone, but when leaving left with a never-ending kick of vengeance. That is why the slaughter continues in the subcontinent.

    The Dots in Orange are Indian Enclaves In Bangladesh , and Dots in Green are Bangladeshi Enclaves in India

    Dahagram–Angarpota is Largest Bangladeshi Enclave Under India and Dasiarchhara is Largest Indian Enclave Under Bangladesh.

    Also a Part of Dahagram-Angarpota was Leased to Bangladesh will be Back with India after Deal

    India Has some 92 Enclaves of Bangladesh and Bangladesh Have 110 Enclaves of India

    so According to Deal , Those 92 Enclaves will Remain with India and 110 Enclaves with Bangladesh

    India will Lose some land in the End , But The Matter will be Solved for Good

    Very good news, now it is required to create a no-man area around the border, so that disputes dont arise from border violations from both sides, My take if necessary and required the no-man area should be initiated in the Indian side.
