Border Area Development Programme (BADP

                        The main objective of Border Area Development Programme (BADP) is to meet the special developmental needs of the people living in remote and inaccessible areas situated near the international border and to saturate the border areas with the entire essential infrastructure.

                        BADP is a 100% centrally funded programme. It covers 362 border blocks, which are located along the international border and come under 96 border districts of 17 States viz., Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Punjab, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal and West Bengal.

                        Criteria for allocation of funds is made on the basis of (i) length of international border (ii) population of border blocks and (iii) area of border blocks with these criteria having equal weightage.

                        The border block is the principal spatial unit within which the BADP funds can be utilized. BADP is operational only in those villages of the border blocks which are located “within 0-20 km” from the international border. Those villages, which are located nearer to the international border, i.e within “0-10km” are classified as 1st priority cluster of villages and will be given the first priority. Beyond this, villages located within “10-15km” are classified as 2nd priority cluster of villages and those that are located within “15-20km” are classified as the 3rd priority cluster of villages. Works will be taken up as per the priority classification accordingly.

                        BADP has been very instrumental in developing the infrastructural gaps in this RD Block. A wide variety of works including construction of Community Hall, Public Playground, School building, Public Library, Supply Godown, Health Sub-Centers, approach roads, etc have been taken up under this scheme. Besides, 10% of fund is set aside for undertaking works under security sector and the Assam Rifle units within this RD Block have been the main beneficiaries.

                        BADP continues to be an important developmental programme for the people of this remote RD Block.
