Bangladesh-Meghalaya land border meeting begins today
Bangladesh and Meghalaya will begin a 3-day meeting on land border survey along the Sylhet-Meghalaya frontier at Sylhet Circuit House today.
Officials said survey department's Director General Md Abdul Mannan will lead a 5-member team while the Indian team will be led by the special director of Land Records and Survey, Meghalaya KS Corpha.
Contacted, the director general said the Indian officials had already arrived in Bangladesh yesterday for the meeting.
Issues regarding the Meghalaya-Sylhet boundary including settling disputed border pillars will be discussed, he said.
In 2010-2011, an extensive survey was done along the Sylhet-Meghalaya borders, mainly to identify the long-standing adversely possessed lands on both sides. But, it is incomplete in most places due to protests and unfavourable weather.
