Trade resumes thru Benapole after Durga Puja holiday

BENAPOLE: Import and export between Bangladesh and India resumed through Benapole port on Saturday morning after four-day Durga Puja holidays.

Imports and exports between the two countries were closed for four consecutive days on the occasion of Durga Puja. However, passport passengers' travel was normal.

Due to the closure for four consecutive days, the government has been deprived of a large amount of revenue. The daily revenue income of the customs house is more than Tk 150 million (15 crore).

Benapole Customs joint Commissioner Nursat Jahan said, "All the officials have been instructed to work fast to earn the revenue. Instructions have also been given to deliver the goods from the port".
