Mizoram Chief Secretary Vanhela Pachuau today expressed concern over gross misappropriation of Border Area Development Programme fund, saying such misuse would henceforth be dealt with an iron hand.

''Anybody found misusing the BADP fund will not be spared,'' Mr Vanhela said, while speaking at a meeting of a state level screening committee held at the secretariat conference hall here. The Chief Secretary, who took charge from January this year, informed that there had been a gross misappropriation of BADP fund during the past few years. ''There is a number of cases where the contractors have drawn 60 per cent of the fund in advance, but failed to carry out the works in Lawngtlai and Saiha districts. He also instructed the DCs of the two districts to prepare a list of such contractors and submit it to him as early as possible,'' he added.

''Such wrongdoings will no longer be tolerated. The law will take its own course,'' he said.

The Border Area Development Programme (BADP) was implemented in Mizoram between 1993 and 1994 and it covered four RD blocks along the India-Bangladesh border. In 1997-1998, the programme was extended to the eastern side bordering Myanmar.

Mizoram shares an international border of 502.19 kms along the India-Myanmar front and 360 kms along the Indo-Bangladesh sector, thus totalling an international border of 818.19 kms. Currently, the BADP is being implemented in 16 RD blocks whose geographical area totals 12665.09 sq kms. Of these, 11 RD blocks are situated along the Indo-Myanmar border and the rest five RD blocks are along the Indo-Bangladesh border.

The meeting today approved the BADP annual action plan and perspective plan during the current financial year in principle. It also reviewed the ongoing projects outside the radius of 20 kms from the border. It also agreed that no new projects would be made outside the radius of 20 kms from the border as per the guidelines.
