Home Minister P. Chidambaram is expected to travel to Dhaka later this month to sign the agreement with his Bangladesh counterpart Shahara Khatun.
There are 126 Indian enclaves on the Bangladesh territory and 96 Bangladesh enclaves on Indian soil along the 4,098-km-long border between the two countries.
