India, Bangladesh continue joint survey on enclaves

India and Bangladesh are continuing a joint survey of enclaves lying in each others territory, which was launched on Monday.

Changraband/Burimary Zero Point, May 30 : India and Bangladesh are continuing a joint survey of enclaves lying in each other's territory, which was launched on Monday.

A ten-member Indian team led by Pinak Ranjan Chakrobartty, Indian High Commissioner in Bangladesh, surveyed Indian enclaves trapped in Bangladeshi soil yesterday.

"To take a fresh look at all this, we had proposed a joint visit to the enclaves or to some of the enclaves, which is what we did," said Chakrobartty.

India has 111 enclaves landlocked inside Bangladesh territory, while Bangladesh has 51 in Indian territory. Indian enclaves, smaller in size, are fragmented where as Bangladesh enclaves are larger in size.

"The India-Bangladesh boundary working groups visited Indian enclaves in Bangladesh and assessed their positions and the problems. We will visit again," said Mujibur Rehman, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Bangladesh.

The decision for a joint survey was taken at meeting between External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Bangladeshi counterpart Iftekhar Choudhury in Delhi on March 31. The last official census in the Indian enclaves was done in 1951.

Indian officials say that with no governing body, the enclaves have become safe havens for members of rebel groups.

People living in the often congested enclaves hope that the survey will bring development in their small pockets.
