Bhomra land port resumes operation after Eid holidays

Trade  through  Bhomra land port in Satkhira resumed on Wednesday after five day of Eid holidays.

Import and export between India and Bangladesh remained suspended from July 8-12 through Bhomra land port on the occasion of Eid. But movement of people through the border was open.

Bhomra land port Customs Clearing & Forwarding (C & F) Agents Association general secretary SM Maksud Khan said the decision to suspend import and export between the two neighbouring countries was made after consultation with India's Guzadanga C & F Agents Cargo Association.

Bhomra land port assistant customs commissioner Amir Mamun said around 300-350 goods laden trucks entered the port through India's Guzadanga land port.

The government earns more than Tk 2 crore daily from this land port, said the customs official.
