India allows Nepal to use three inland waterways

The Indian government has in principle allowed Nepal to use its three inland waterways. India has consented to grant access to the Kolkata-Kalughat-Raxaul; Kolkata-Sahebgunj-Biratnagar; and Kolkata-Varanasi-Raxaul routes. Nepal will be able to operate its own vessels on the Ganga river. India currently grants duty-free access to Nepalese products with at least 30 per cent value addition. It has agreed in principle on giving flexibility in tariffs to the goods imported from Nepal.
