Abstract

Infiltration is the movement through or into an area or territory occupied by either friendly or enemy troops or organizations. The movement is made, either by small groups or by individuals, at extended or irregular intervals. When used in connection with the enemy, it infers that contact is avoided . In intelligence usage, placing an agent or other person in a target area in hostile territory. Usually involves crossing a frontier or other guarded line . Methods of infiltration are: black (clandestine); grey (through legal crossing point but under false documentation); and white (legal). Bangladeshi infiltration poses various socio-economic-legal issues to us, specifically in the North-East States of India. Since most of the Bangladeshi population in India is illegally migrated and most of them are engaged in low paying, unregulated, low end jobs such as construction workers, housemaids, rickshaw pullers etc. As a result, documenting and monitoring the movement of this population is very difficult. Besides, their contribution to the State exchequer in nil.
