Nepal also seeks to use Mundra & Dhamra for its trade

Nepal has reportedly sought access to two additional Indian ports, Mundra in Gujarat and Dhamra in Odisha, to facilitate trade with other nations, during the recent two-day Joint Secretary-level meeting between the two countries.

It currently uses Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and Haldia in Kolkata for its international trade. India has given a positive reaction to the proposal but a concrete agreement is yet to be made, reports quoted an official of Nepal’s Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies as saying.
