Land Boundary Agreement 1974

The State Government offered each family 100 days of work cards as well as workstations in jute mills. This measure must be, as DMO government officials Cooch Behar say, a temporary measure. The goal is to provide a source of income for residents and help them learn skills in this area. At the same time, it allows them to find other jobs in West Bengal or other parts of India in each sector that suits them. [36] However, campers are reluctant to accept this opportunity offered by the government, often under the influence of civil society organizations, supported by rival political parties and local leaders who have convinced them of the futility of accepting government job offers. [37] Male campers, under the influence of local leaders, believe that the jobs offered to them in the jute mills do not meet their aspirations for a decent wage. During their lives in Bangladesh, they worked in a wide range of occupations such as education, economics, agriculture and carpentry. [38] They want to be placed immediately in jobs that match their skills and qualifications. The lack of adequate professional opportunities forced them to seek work in the villagers` country, which contributed to their discontent and feelings of marginalization. They would be paid less than their employees while working in other people`s countries. While in Bangladesh they earned 15,000 BDT (12,000 Us-Euro) a month, in India they don`t even earn 3,000 INR per month. The 100 days of work that people have access to per family have raised 18,000 INR. But when they ran out of their 100-day work card, they didn`t get any news.

After the partition of India in 1947, Rangpur was connected to eastern Pakistan. Cooch Behar State, with its enclaves and holes, was a state of origin whose Raja had the possibility of reaching India or Pakistan. The Cooch Behar district was merged with India in 1949. The desire for „de-enclave” of most enclaves was manifested in 1958 by an agreement between Jawaharlal Nehru and Feroz Khan Noon, the respective prime ministers, for exchanges between India and Pakistan, without considering losses or gains of territory.
