The 1974 bilateral agreement between India and Sri Lanka demarcated the boundary between the two countries from Palk Strait to Adam’s Bridge and clarified certain issues handed down unresolved and undetermined from the colonial period.

The Centre, in a counter affidavit to a PIL that came up for hearing yesterday before the first bench of the Madras High Court, maintained that it did not - as popularly believed - cede Katchatheevu, as India’s boundary was already one mile off the West coast of the island.

Similarly, the agreement of 1976 determined the Maritime Boundary of the two countries.

These agreements were placed before Parliament and came into effect following due process of ratification and exchange of instruments of ratification between two countries.
