“Bilateral secretary-level meetings between India and Bangladesh were held in October. It has been decided that one of the river cruise operators would be starting operations from March 2019 from Kolkata through Sunderbans via the protocol route to Bangladesh and then to the northeast,” Member, Inland Waterways Authority of India, SVK Reddy said.

Reddy was in Kolkata to attend a transport seminar organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) recently. Bangladesh shipping secretary Abdus Samsah had initially stated that private players will be allowed to operate a river cruise between India and Bangladesh, which will cover about 1,539 km.
