Military Reform: Memorandum of Settlement (Bodo Accord)

16. Civil and Police Services

(iii) The Central Government, while making recruitments from the State of Assam to the Army, para military forces and police units, will hold special recruitment drives within the BAC area.

Implementation History

1993

No Implementation

There are two reasons why the provision regarding recruitment drives in the Army within the BAC area was not implemented. First, against the demands of the ABSU and BPAC, the BAC area was never demarcated.1 Second, the ABSU and other Bodo groups engaged in agitations and armed conflict, rendering the BAC dysfunctional.2
