Recently, India has handed over 250 pre-fabricated houses to Myanmar for use of displaced returnees from Bangladesh.

  • The Indian government had taken up the project under its Rakhine State Development Programme (RSDP).
  • India signed a development programme for Rakhine State in Myanmar in late 2017 which was designed to assist the Myanmar government in Rakhine State to build housing infrastructure for displaced Rohingyas.
  • The program includes creation of infrastructure in the areas of education, health, agriculture and allied activities, agro-processing, community development sectors and related training in these areas.
  • More than 700,000 minority Rohingya Muslims fled from Myanmar’s Rakhine state to neighbouring Bangladesh since August 2017, triggering a massive refugee crisis.
