Motor vehicle agreement between India, B’desh and Nepal on cards

India has approached Bangladesh and Nepal through diplomatic channels for taking steps to opertionalize the Motor Vehicle agreement to enable free movement of cargo and passenger vehicles between the three neighbouring countries, Minister of state for road transport Manusukh L Mandaviya told the Rajya sabha  on December 19.

 In a written answer the minister said India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal (BBIN) signed a framework Motor Vehicle Agreement (MVA) in June 2015 to enable movement of passenger and cargo vehicles across borders among the four countries.  

 Bhutan, being one of the signatories to the BBIN MVA,has not yet ratified the Agreement for its entry into force.  Pending ratification, however, Bhutan has given its consent for the BBIN MVA to enter into force among the other 3 countries i.e. Bangladesh, India and Nepal, who have already ratified it.India has, therefore, approached Bangladesh and Nepal through diplomatic channels for evolving modalities to operationalize the MVA among Bangladesh, India and Nepal (BIN).
