India-Nepal Bus Service resumed after 27 years


Who: India-Nepal Bus Service
What: Resumed after 27 years
When: 4 January 2016

India-Nepal Bus Service on 4 January 2016 resumed after a gap of 27 years. The service was suspended 27 years ago in the wake of the Indo-Nepal Trade and Transit Treaty.

The service runs between Kanchanpur in Nepal, which is close to Banbasa border in Champavat district of Uttarakhand, and Anand Vihar ISBT in Delhi.

To travel in these buses, no special documents are required as both the countries share open border.

The service is expected to benefit people living along the border areas as they have family as well as trade relations with each other.

And, it is also expected to benefit around 10000 Nepalis who travel from Kanchanpur district, Dandel Dhura, Voti, Sapen, Acham, Kalali, Jagbuddha and Siddhartha Nagar areas in Nepal.
