India and Bangladesh today decided to conduct a joint inspection on boundary pillars, a government official said on Wednesday. “This November, We have decided to conduct a joint inspection of the boundary pillars along the Indo-Bangla border,” Special Director of Meghalaya Land Records and Survey, PW Ingty said after conclusion of the three-day 129th Indo-Bangla boundary conference here. The Indian delegation was led by Ingty, while the five-member Bangladesh delegation was led by Director General of Land Records and Surveys, Md Rafiqul Islam. This apart, the conference also resolved correction of names of newly created districts when the boundary pillars are erected, he said. Though, there are no new districts created in Meghalaya, but creation of new districts in Bangladesh need to be included in the border pillars, the Indian official said. Ingty said the meeting also agreed to renovate the broken boundary pillars and erect new pillars which were found either missing or washed away by rivers. The Bangladesh officials expressed hope that both the countries will ensure proper maintenance of border pillars erected in the international border. “We want to ensure that the boundary pillars are maintained without any damage along the 423 km international border in Meghalaya,” Islam said. The delegates from Bangladesh presented a detailed report on the extent of damage as well as the number of border pillars that disappeared. Earlier, the Survey of India and Bangladesh Survey had jointly carried out a survey in the areas where the boundary pillars were found missing or broken else washed away by rivers. The authorities also carried maps and equipment to determine the exact position of those pillars.
