Bagge Award And Nehru-Noon Agreement

These agreements are aimed at transferring certain areas to Pakistan after delimitation. In the light of the opinion of the Supreme Court in Special Reference No. 1 of 1959, it is proposed to amend the First List of the Constitution by virtue of a law related to Article 368 of these Regulations in order to give effect to the transfer of these territories. The origin of the border disputes between India and Bangladesh dates back to the period of division. The former East Pakistan was cut off from the region of Assam and Bengal. In the context of Pakistan, it was natural for East Pakistan (Bangladesh) to interfere in border disputes with India. India and Bangladesh have a common land border of about 4096.7 km, established in accordance with the Radcliffe Prize of 1947, at the time with East Pakistan. Radcliffe had divided the Jalpaigudi district between India and Pakistan by assigning some Thanas to one country and others to the other. The border was determined according to the borders of the Thanas. In describing this limitation, Radcliffe gave up mentioning a Thana. Berubari Union No. 12 is located inside Jalpaigudi thana, which has been assigned to India.

However, the omission of Thana Boda and the misrepresentation on the map allowed Pakistan to claim that part of Berubari was part of it. The land border agreement was signed on 16 May 1974 between Indira Gandhi and Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who announced the exchange of enclaves and the surrender of harmful goods. [17] Under the agreement, India retained the Berubari Union No. 12 enclave, while Bangladesh maintained the Dahagram-Angorpota enclaves, with India allowing it to access them by providing a 178-meter by 85-metre corridor (584 feet ×,279 feet) called the Tin Bigha Corridor. Bangladesh quickly ratified the agreement in 1974, but India did not. The issue of the undemarcated land boundary of about 6.1 kilometers (3.8 miles) in three sectors – Daikhata-56 in West Bengal, Muhuri River-Belonia in Tripura and Lathitila-Dumabari in Assam – has also not been resolved. The Tin Bigha corridor was leased to Bangladesh in 1992 against local resistance. [3] The bill is certainly good news for those living in the enclaves, as they will have access to basic services such as schools and water. Finally, it will secure the border and help stem illegal immigration and widespread cross-border smuggling. .
