The first consignment of Indian fuel oil has reached Tripura through Bangladesh. Ten lorries – nine carrying fuel and one LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) – entered Bangladesh through Sylhet's Tamabil border from Meghalaya on Saturday morning. The consignment left for Tripura at 5pm Saturday and reached Kailasahar through Chatlapur border at 11pm after travelling some 136 km road in Bangladesh. India's northeastern state Tripura has been experiencing a huge fuel oil crunch for the last two months. Torrential rain and landslide have damaged national highway NH-44 that connects landlocked Tripura with Assam. Bangladesh had earlier allowed India to ferry heavy machinery of the Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) and carry food grains to Tripura. Sylhet Roads and Highways Executive Engineer Sheikh Monirul Islam said India will pay 1.02 paisa a ton transit fee for using each kilometer of Bangladesh road. Transporting petroleum products from Assam to Tripura via Bangladesh will save India time and money as the existing 400km mountainous route takes over 10 hours. The Indian Oil Corporation and Bangladesh's RHD authorities signed a MoU in Dhaka on August 18 to facilitate shipment of fuel oil through Bangladesh.
