Expert committee to examine rules on people's movement near Indo-Myanmar border

According to reports, the Centre has set up an expert committee to examine the rules which allow free movement of Indian and Myanmarese citizens within 16 kms of the border, but are exploited by militants for smuggling arms, drugs, and fake Indian currency. The decision was taken at a meeting of chief ministers of the northeastern states which share a porous border with Myanmar. India's 1,643-km border with Myanmar touches four states-- Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram. It is unique in many ways as it has a visa-free movement regime for people living within 16 kms on either side of the border. They can stay up to 72 hours with effective and valid permits issued by the designated authority on either side.
