Assam-Meghalaya arrive at a solution for 50 yr old dispute. Read full report
Assam and Meghalaya have decided to put an end to the 50 year old dispute. The two states have agreed in principle to equally divide the disputed 36 sq.km. of land in six different regions.
There continue to be six other areas where the dispute continues to remain, will be handled in the next phase of the negotiations.
The two states have, however, agreed that the disputes will be limited only to 12 areas based on the claims made by Meghalaya till 2011, and Meghalaya will not be allowed to make any further claims.
The Assam-Meghalaya proposal will be sent to MHA for approval, since the inter-state borders is a Union list subject.
