Banaskantha: Top revenue officials of
Gujarat and Rajasthan met on Tuesday to sort out the long pending
boundary dispute between the two states, officials said here.

"Revenue officials of Gujarat and Rajasthan today
completed the tallying of survey on the land dispute,"
District Inspector Land Record (DILR) Sabarkantha B V Bilwal
said.

"Now the district collectors of Udaipur in Rajasthan
and Sabarkantha in Gujarat will be meeting at Himmatnagar
shortly to finalise the land issue pending since last several
decades," he said.

An ultra modern electric total station instrument
based technology is being used for the first time in
determining the boundary areas, he said.

The survey work began at Mathasara village in
Khedbrahma taluka of Sabarkantha district and Mahadi village
in Kotra taluka of Udaipur in Rajasthan.

"The boundary dispute has been pending since the
separation of Gujarat from Bombay province. Several
politicians, including local MLAs have been raising the issue
in the state Assembly from time to time," MLA from Khedbrahma
Ashwin Kotwal said.

He said he had met the Gujarat Chief Minister
Narendra Modi and brought to his notice the grievances of the
residents in bordering villages of the state.
