with the requirements of Bangladesh Railway, the locomotives have been suitably modified by the Indian side. These locomotives
will help handle the increasing volume of passenger and freight train operations in Bangladesh.
Speaking o­n the occasion, External Affairs Minister Dr S. Jaishankar said, “I am delighted to join this ceremony of handing
over 10 locomotives to Bangladesh. I am glad to know that Parcel and container trains have been started between both the
countries. This will open up new opportunities for our businesses. I am happy to note that movement of trade by rail have been
ensured. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the supplies of essentials particularly in the holy month of Ramadan were ensured.” He
further highlighted the depth of time tested India-Bangladesh ties, based o­n mutual trust and respect. He expressed his happiness
that the COVID pandemic had not slowed down the pace of bilateral cooperation and conveyed that he looked forward to more
such milestones in the o­ngoing historic Mujib Barsho.
Speaking o­n the occasion, Minister of Railways and Commerce & Industry Shri Piyush Goyal said, “It gives me immense
pleasure to hand over 10 broad gauge locomotives for the use of Bangladesh Railways. These locomotives will be useful in handling
the o­n-going freight train operations between India & Bangladesh. To ensure the usability of these locos in Bangladesh, they have
been modified. We have been huge strides forward in our respective efforts at achieving development & growth. India &
Bangladesh have come a long way in the last few years. Our bilateral relationship today is at its very best. Our neighbourhood
policy follows PM Shri Narendra Modi ji's vision of Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas. The leadership of both, India &
Bangladesh, are committed to reviving the pre-1965 railway connection between the two countries. Out of the 7 rail links that
existed then, 4 are functional now. To further strengthen rail connectivity in the region, o­ne new rail link, between Agartala in India
and Akhaura in Bangladesh is being constructed & finance under Grant Assistance of India. During COVID-19, both Railways have
shown exemplary foresight in managing the crisis and maintained the supply chain by stepping up transportation of essential
commodities. Parcel train and container train services have been introduced via Benapole in Bangladesh. Both these services have
already started in the month of July. These have enabled us to move a wide range of products from both sides. Railways have
ensured that the two countries can continue our bilateral trade without any disruption & health risk. Both Railways are ensuring a
better future for the people.”During his address, o­n behalf of the Indian Railways, Shri Piyush Goyal also committed complete,
unstinted & unlimited support to Bangladesh in its development of Bangladesh rail network. He underscored the significance of
railway cooperation in enhancing bilateral trade and connectivity and in further boosting the economic partnership between the
two countries.
In the recent times, India and Bangladesh have stepped up their rail cooperation in mitigating the impact of the COVID-19
pandemic, as trade via land border faced disruptions. Rail as a cost effective and environmental friendly solution, has helped in
transporting essential commodities across the border. Both sides saw the highest ever exchange of freight trains in the month of
June. A total of 103 freight trains were utilized for carrying essential commodities and raw materials.
Recently, parcel and container train services have also commenced between India and Bangladesh. This is expected to
significantly enhance the scope of bilateral trade.
