India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan are all set to sign a deal on June 15 this year that would allow a seamless movement of vehicles between the countries’ borders by the end of 2015.
According to the Dawn, the deal will allow a transit of passengers, personal and cargo vehicles between the four countries.
The agreement is expected to make the cross-border trade efficient with a reduction in cost and time of loading and unloading of goods and people at the borders.
Reports suggest that officials are confident that the plying of vehicles will commence by the end of 2015. However, there are still many procedural matters to be negotiated in the agreement.
New Delhi and Dhaka have also planned to start four more routes for bus services between India and Bangladesh.
