Cabinet approves MoU between India and Bangladesh for fairway development on two rivers
The Union Cabinet has approved MoU between India and Bangladesh for fairway development on two stretches. They are Ashuganj-Zakiganj stretch of Kushiyara river and Sirajganj-Daikhawa stretch of Jamuna river. It will be implemented mainly in the Indo-Bangladesh protocol route by undertaking necessary dredging jointly by the two countries. The MoU will considerably help to reduce the logistics cost of cargo movement to North Eastern states of India. It will also reduce the dependence and congestion through the narrow Siliguri Chicken’s Neck corridor.
