AGARTALA, June 7 - An Indo-Bangla joint team has selected the site for establishing a Border Haat in Dhalai district of Tripura, official sources said today.
�We have agreed to set up a Border Haat at Kamalpur/Kurmaghat after conducting an on the spot visit by a joint Indo-Bangla team�, said Additional DM of Dhalai district DK Chakma over telephone from Ambassa, district headquarters of the district.
Items to be sold at the proposed Border Haat and finalisation of vendors and vendees were also done in the meeting held yesterday in the presence of Addl DM of Moulavi Bazar of Bangladesh, he said.
�This was the first meeting of Border Haat management committee and it was very much successful. We will meet on regular basis as and when necessary to establish the Border Haat at the earliest�, he said.
However, there is a problem in setting up Border Haat at Kamalpur/Kurmaghat because a nullah will come on the way if it comes up along the zero line of Indo-Bangla border. As per the guideline, Border Haat should come up along the zero line of Indo-Bangla border. �If this is done then there must be an alternative arrangement to cover the nullah. The Industries and Commerce department will send an expert to find a solution to the problem�, Chakma, who led the Indian team, said.
Currently two Border Haats are functional in Tripura, one at Kamalasagar in Sepahijala district and another at Srinagar in South Tripura district. Another Border Haat at Raghna in North Tripura district is in the pipeline with the site already selected by a joint team of two sides.
