Border Dispute between Assam and Mizoram

Guwahati: The Assam government has dismantled two temporary sheds built in a disputed area of Hailakandi district along the state’s border with Mizoram, following objections from the neighboring state, officials said on Tuesday.

He said that two sheds for laborers were constructed on Sunday for the proposed construction work at Kuchurthal in Barakwadi district of Assam.
Some officials in Mizoram objected to the shed for the workers. We consulted our seniors, who suggested dismantling the structure for peace,” an official told PTI.

Border Dispute between Assam and Mizoram “Two sheds on the Assam side” were razed on Monday, and Mizoram authorities have been informed about the move, he said.
Another official said that the site where the temporary structure was constructed falls within the disputed border area, and talks are on at the chief minister’s level to resolve the issue.

Assam’s Barak Valley districts of Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi share a 164.6 km long border with the three districts of Mizoram, Aizawl, Kolasib and Mammit.
The long-standing border dispute between the two neighboring states stems from two colonial demarcations of 1875 and 1933.

A notification of 1875 separated the Lushai Hills from the Cachar plains, and another of 1933 drew a demarcation between the Lushai Hills and Manipur.

Mizoram insists that the demarcation of inter-state boundaries should be based on the 1875 notification, which is in line with the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation (BEFR) Act, 1873.
