In what could prove to be a big relief for Nepal, New Delhi has decided to open transit facility through Indian territory for fertiliser trade between Dhaka and Kathmandu.
According to All India Radio’s news division, at present, 27,000 metric ton of fertiliser will be exported to Nepal through the Rohanpur-Singhabad rail transit route.
Another lot of 25,000 metric tonne of fertiliser is likely to be exported subsequently, it said.
A report carried earlier by The Kathmandu Post noted that fertiliser shortage is a perennial problem in Nepal.
It added that “despite tall promises the Oli administration has miserably failed in ensuring the timely supply of fertilisers.”
