Indian to use Bangladeshi corridor to supply petroleum to northeast after floods damage Assam route

Dhaka, August 6: As the infrastructure in Assam has been damaged due to heavy rains, the territory of Bangladesh will be used to take petroleum to India's north-eastern states, Tripura, South Assam and Mizoram. These petroleum products will travel 140 kilometers in Bangladesh by tanker. A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) and the Road Transport and Highways Department of the Government of Bangladesh for the movement of vehicles carrying Indian petroleum or LPG products using the territory of Bangladesh on Wednesday.
