India-Bangladesh train services may resume next month
An inter-ministerial meeting ended yesterday without fixing any date for resuming the operation of trains between Bangladesh and India amid expectations that the service would resume soon.
Officials decided that Bangladesh Railway, through the foreign ministry, will write to India regarding the matter.
"Date for resumption of train services will be fixed upon receiving India's response," said Sardar Shahadat Ali, additional director general at Bangladesh Railway.
However, April 1 or April 14 (Pahela Baishakh) are being discussed as probable dates, sources said.
Currently, India is not allowing any foreigners with tourist visas to enter the country through land or waterways.
