The 29th meeting of the joint technical committee of Nepal and India on boundary management will be held in New Delhi in March next year.

This was agreed during the 28th JTC meeting held from December 22-23, which decided to recommend the extension of its mandate by six months till June 2007 to complete the remaining tasks on border management, the Indian Embassy said.

During the meeting, Nepalese delegation was led by Toya Nath Baral, director general of Survey Department while the Indian delegation was led by Major General M Gopal Rao, surveyor general of India.

Prior to the JTC, a preparatory survey officials meeting of both countries was held in Kathmandu on 18-20 December 2006.

The two sides welcomed the progress made in respect of mandated boundary tasks including fair mapping of boundary of strip sheets. The JTC has successfully completed more than 98 percent of mapping work.
