New Delhi: The delegation level Inter-Governmental Railway meeting between India and Bangladesh that met over the last two days took a view on streamlining of inter-country freight train operations, upgrading infrastructure and establishing more rail connectivity points to enhance people-to-people contact between the two countries.
The delegations decided to expedite the projects for opening rail links between four new destinations between the two countries.
Both the delegations agreed to examine the feasibility of increasing the frequency of Maitree Express, the only rail link between the two counties, and introducing the system of return tickets.
A Working Group comprising government officials from both countries has been formed. It will look into issues relating to financial, operational, commercial and security issues including passenger comfort associated with the running of Maitree Express.
The Working Group is expected to submit its report soon.
