Implementation History

1993

Minimum Implementation

The 1993 accord had a provision to protect the religious and social practices of the Bodos in the BAC area. Because the implementation of this provision was tied to the establishment of the Autonomous Badland Council (ABC), legal protection did not materialize.1 This particular provision was not implemented.
