Ahmed said that in the first phase, six ICCPs would be set up at Akhaurah (in Tripura), Dawki (in Meghalaya) and Karimganj (in Assam) - all along the border with Bangladesh, Raxaul and Jogbani (in Bihar) along the border with Nepal and Attari (in Punjab) along the border with Pakistan.
The setting up of ICPs along India's international border is a major initiative which the centre has undertaken as part of a scheme envisaged during the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-12) and a Land Port Authority of India has been established to supervise the construction works and maintenance of these ICCPs.
