Import and export between Bangladesh and India through Benapole land port resumed today after closure for three days on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims.
A total of 95 trucks carrying different items of goods entered Bangladesh from India while 42 trucks of goods entered India from Bangladesh from this morning to noon, sources at the Benapole Port said.
Many goods laden trucks are still waiting to enter Bangladesh from the Indian side, they added.
With the resumption of import and export the port has become busier as well, reports our Benapole correspondent.
"Import and export resumed from this morning after a three-day shutdown on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr holiday. All field-level officials have been instructed to load goods from the port and unload the goods from Indian trucks," said Benapole Port director Abdul Jalil.
Sajedur Rahman, general secretary of the Benapole C&F Agent Staff Association, said hundreds of goods laden trucks got stranded at the Indian Petrapole Port on the occasion of Eid holiday. With the resumption of import and export, the liveliness of the port has returned.
