Tripura's Gomti River added to Indo-Bangladesh Protocol list

In an agreement signed between India and Bangladesh, Sonamura-Daudkandi route on Tripura’s River Gomti and Rajshahi-Dhulian-Rajshahi routes were added to the list of Indo-Bangladesh Protocol (IBP) routes. This is the first ever international waterway that Tripura has got and the state is hopeful that the protocol route will emerge as a ‘gateway of Northeast’ in future by tapping into bilateral connectivity and trade potential. As per the revised protocol, a 93 km stretch of Gomti in Tripura’s Sepahijala district connecting Sonamura on the Indian side and Daudkandi in Bangladesh and Rajhahi-Dhulian route would be in effect which is expected to improve connectivity in both the countries and augment infrastructure in Bangladesh.
