Revised guidelines for border area development
Shillong: The Centre has issued revised guidelines to border states for the development of villages located up to ten kilometers of the international border.
As per the revised guidelines, the state governments
concerned shall arrange to utilize the border area development
programme funds only in those villages of the border blocks,
which are located within 0-10 km from the international
border, an official statement here said.
Those villages, which are located nearer to the
international border, will get first priority. After setting
up basic infrastructure in these villages, the next set of
villages located within 0-15 km and 0-20 km would be taken
up, it said.
According to the guidelines, if the first village in a
block is located at a far away location from the international
border, the first village or hamlet in the block may be taken
as 0 km distance village for drawing the priority list.
The revised guidelines of the BADP came into force with
effect from the 2009-10 financial year.
The Centre has been implementing the Border Area
Development Programme (BADP) in the border blocks, through 17
state governments having land borders with neighbouring
The BADP emphasizes focussed socio-economic development
of border areas which are generally underdeveloped.
