Joint survey of Indo-Bangla rivers begins

A joint team of Bangladesh and India yesterday started a two-day survey of the border rivers of Ichchamati and Kalindi to demarcate water territory of the two countries.
The survey started from Pillar No 1 at village Padmashakhra in Sadar upazila.
In Satkhira district, there are at least 100-kilometre river border between the two countries, sources said. Lands of Bangladesh drifted away towards India due to continuous erosion by the border rivers and change in their course over the years. The map of Satkhira was changed following disappearance of a vast tract of land in Sadar, Debhata, Shyamnagar and Kaliganj upazilas, sources said.
The Charge Officer of Bangladesh Land Records and Survey Department, Ferdous Hossain, is leading the Bangladesh side while the Indian side is being led by the Charge Officer of Indian Land Record and Survey Department, S Chandra.
