In addition, a lasting solution has been found to the problem that has claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people in the region. Under the new agreement, the Bodoland Territorial Area District would now be called Bodoland Regional Council. This, Baruah said, could be the government`s trick to securing more “positions” to rehabilitate new entrants. Minister Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma said all stakeholders of Bodo company have signed this agreement and reaffirmed the territorial integrity of Assam. Details of Monday`s peace deal are not yet available. According to Northeast Now, the Bodoland Territorial Council will likely gain more autonomy and could gain special status after the pact comes into force. The Council may have special rights for homes and “outsiders” may be required to obtain a “work permit”. The settlement agreement also provides that the center “grants a general amnesty to NDFB convicts and withdraws all cases and charges against members and sympathizers of the outfit.” Progress on the third agreement began after activists signed a suspension of operations agreement with the state and central governments. The deal was reached after leaders and cadres of the banned group traveled to India from their bases in Myanmar on January 11 to join the peace process. With this agreement, more than 1500 armed cadres will renounce violence and join the mainstream. The Union Government provides a specific development package of 1500 crowns in the amount of three years to carry out specific projects for the development of the areas of Bodo. The current agreement provides for the establishment of a Commission, in accordance with Section 14 of the Sixth List of the Indian Constitution, which will recommend the inclusion or exclusion of the tribal population in villages bordering the BTAD areas.
