India and Nepal have reached an agreement to resolve differences on reconstructing damaged pillars along the mutual border and clearing the encroachment on the "No Man's Land", an Indian official said here today.
Six Nepalese officials and officials from five districts of Uttar Pradesh took part in the meeting, he said.
A team to survey the border areas for the purpose has arrived in Balrampur, Misra said, adding that the work to be carried out on the border has been divided into three parts.
They include identifying the damaged pillars, reconstructing them and clearing the No Man's Land.
Misra said the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), the Public Works Department, Revenue Department, and the Nepali Police will contribute to the process.
He hoped the resolution of differences will help in strengthening ties between the people of the two countries.
The SSB, which works under the the Union Home Ministry, is tasked with guarding the 1,751-km India-Nepal border.
Uttar Pradesh shares a 599.3-km open border with Nepal touching seven districts - Pilibhit, Lakhimpur Kheri, Bahraich, Sravasti, Balrampur, Sidhharthnagar and Maharajganj.
