Bangladesh Railway has set the ticket fare for the newly announced biweekly train service between New Jalpaiguri (NJP) in India and Dhaka in Bangladesh. 

“The Dhaka-New Jalpaiguri ticket will cost Tk2,200 (excluding Tk500 travel tax) and the Chilahati-New Jalpaiguri ticket will cost Tk700 (excluding Tk500 travel tax),” said Railway Minister Nurul Islam Sujan on Tuesday.

He also said the prime ministers of the two neighbouring nations would officially inaugurate the non-stop passenger train with 10 compartments on the new 513km-route from Dhaka on March 26, the day Bangladesh begins the golden jubilee celebrations of its independence.

The minister confirmed the matter while addressing a discussion on the occasion of the historic March 7 at the conference room of the Panchagarh district administration on Sunday, according to media reports.

This will be the third passenger train between the two countries. 

At present, Maitree Express runs between Kolkata and Dhaka, and Bandhan Express connects Kolkata and Khulna.

On December 17, the train route between Chilahati in Bangladesh's Nilphamari and Haldibari in Cooch Behar of West Bengal was opened after a gap of 55 years for goods trains. 

The passenger train between New Jalpaiguri and Dhaka will take the same route.

Customs and immigration facilities will be provided at NJP and Dhaka railway stations. 

The train will run from NJP on Thursdays and Fridays and from Dhaka on Fridays and Tuesdays.
