The import and export service between Bangladesh and India has been suspended at Hili land port in Dinajpur on the occasion of the 73rd Republic Day of India.
However, the internal activities of the port have been in operation.
Abdur Rahman Liton, general secretary of Hili land port C&F agents association, confirmed the matter on Wednesday (January 26) morning.
He said, “Today is a public holiday in India as it is the 73rd Republic Day of the country. Following that, traders of the two countries suspended the import and export service at Hili land port but the internal activities of the port are being carried out.”
The service will resume from Thursday (January 27) morning, he added.
Meanwhile, Hili immigration check post’s Officer-in-Charge (OC) Sekendar Ali said, passport holders can come to Bangladesh from India through the check post despite the suspension of the import and export service because passport holders have no connection to the import-export service.
