Functions and Activities of the B. A. D. deptt.

Before the partition of India, the people living in villages near the border had a prosperous economy as their products found ready markets in areas presently in Bangladesh, then known as East Pakistan. Similarly, essential commodities were imported to the bordering areas of the state from Bangladesh and communication from these areas to the interior of the State was virtual non - existent. However, after the partition of the country in 1947, abrupt stoppage of trade resulted in tremendous economic hardship to the people living in the bordering areas of the state. The people of this region were deprived of the traditional markets viz. Border Hats to sell their products. With a view to ameliorate the suffering of the people, the Government had taken up various integrated development schemes under the Border Areas Development Programme which had been included as the distinct item in the State Five Year Plan since the Fourth Five Year Plan period. For the purpose, the border areas have been defined and demarcated as a territory to the distance of 10 kms crow fly distance inside the state from the international border with Bangladesh. While demarcating the border areas of the state contiguous to the international border with Bangladesh, the following criteria were taken into account: -

  • Distance from the international boundary with Bangladesh (approx. 10 kms crow fly Distance)

  • Degree of economic backwardness and

  •  Dependence upon the traditional trade relations with areas that now fall into the present day Bangladesh.

Sources of funding: The Border Areas Development is implementing the following schemes: -

  1. The Special Central Assistance (SCA) under Border Areas Development Programme (BADP) funded by the Government of India.

  2. The Schemes under Article 275 (i) of the constitution of India funded by the Government of India.

  3. The Land Acquisition and construction of the departmental buildings, etc. funded by the State Government.

  4. Construction of Rural Roads in the border areas by the State Government.
