Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Mohammad Imran has emphasised on maintaining regular communication between the India and Bangladesh to facilitate the movement of passengers and import-export of goods.

He told this during his meeting with Aditya Mishra, Chairman, Land Ports Authority of India, at his office in New Delhi on Monday morning.

The Bangladesh envoy shared his recent inspecting experience of integrated checkposts and hoped that the two countries would work together to develop infrastructure in the border areas, said the Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi on Tuesday.

During the meeting, Aditya Mishra briefed the High Commissioner about the activities of his organisation and the operation of the integrated checkposts set up in the port area on the Indian side of the Bangladesh land border.

At these integrated checkposts, all the concerned departments including immigration, customs and border guards work under one roof.

This is beneficial for passenger movement and transportation of goods. The Land Port Authority of India is a highly powered coordinating body under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
