According to a popular legend, the enclaves were used as stakes in card or chess games centuries ago between two regional kings, the Raja of Koch Bihar and the Maharadja of Rangpur.  As far as the historical archives are concerned, the small territories were apparently the result of a confused result of a contract between the kingdom of Koch Bihar and the Mughal Empire of 1713. Perhaps the kingdom and the moguls ended a war without setting a limit for the territories that had been won or lost.  The Tin Bigha Corridor, an 85-metre-wide strip of Indian territory from the Dahagram-Angarpota enclave to the country closest to Bangladesh, was permanently leased to Bangladesh for access to the enclave. It is available to the inhabitants of Dahagram-Angarpota.   The 922 people were housed in three camps in Dinhata, Haldibari and Mekliganj.

In particular, the LBA had been almost fully implemented prior to ratification by the two States, with the exception of some outstanding issues, including the exchange of territorial enclaves. An enclave is a part of the national territory entirely surrounded by the territory of another state. Following the amendment of india`s constitution, the LBA will allow the replacement of a large number of land enclaves held by India and Bangladesh respectively. The exchange within the LBA comprises 162 enclaves and is planned as a gradual process, which will take place over several months and is expected to end in June 2016. Land exchange will simplify the international borders of both states. India and Bangladesh have a common land border of more than 4,000 km. The long length of the borders shared by these states and the historical border conflicts have caused tensions between the two states in the past, and border disputes between the security forces of the two states have been frequent.
