    Border dispute between Assam-Mizoram yet to be resolved

    “The Centre is making efforts to resolve the border dispute between Mizoram and Assam. But it is not known when it will be resolved,” Lalchamliana said.

    Guwahati: The inter-state border dispute between Assam and Mizoram is yet to be resolved, said Mizoram home minister Lalchamliana in the State Assembly on Monday.

    The two neighboring states have not yet reached a consensus on the boundary issues, he said in written replies to questions of three opposition members of the Congress and the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM).

    “The Centre is making efforts to resolve the border dispute between Mizoram and Assam. But it is not known when it will be resolved,” Lalchamliana said.

    In pursuance of the Centre’s directive in July last year, the state government has already appointed a nodal officer for border issues, he said.

    Earlier on March 3, Lalchamliana informed the State Assembly that the State Cabinet in July 2019 had approved the demarcation notified in 1875 under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873 as the actual boundary of Mizoram.

    Mizoram’s three districts Aizawl, Kolasib, and Mamit share a 164.6-km inter-state border with Assam.

    Several rounds of talks between the two states since 1995 have failed to yield a result.

    After a massive tussle in 2018, the border row resurfaced in August last year and in February this year, which were defused after a series of parleys and with the Centre’s intervention.
