Export and import activities between Bangladesh and India through the Benapole land port remained suspended since Tuesday morning as Border Security Force (BSF) did not allow C&F agents to enter India.

As a result, many goods-laden trucks remained stranded on both sides of the port.  

India exports 400 to 500 trucks of goods through Benapole port and imports from 150 to 200 trucks. 

If one day’s trade is closed, revenue collection of at least Tk15 crore is affected.
