India, Bangladesh launch survey to record ‘choice of nationality’


  • Under the historic Land Boundary Agreement (LBA), 50 teams began the survey in 111 Indian enclaves in Bangladesh while 25 teams went inside India to carry out the identical task in 51 enclaves in India.
  • A total of 37,369 people live in the 111 Indian enclaves inside Bangladesh while 14,215 people live in the 51 Bangladeshi enclaves inside Indian territories.
  • On the first day of  Modi’s maiden visit on June 6, India and Bangladesh swapped documents regarding the LBA that paves the way for operationalisation of the 1974 pact under which 161 enclaves under the control of either countries will be exchanged.
