FCI to Transport Grains Within India via Bangladesh

In coming months, the Food Corporation of India (FCI) will attempt its first ever cross-border river grain transport. India gained permission from Bangladesh to use the Ashuganj river port in transporting grain first by barge and then by truck from Kolkata to the northeast state of Tripura. Over the next 2-3 years, the FCI will be pushing for new changes that will make processes of procurement, storage, and distribution more efficient, including construction of silos and mechanization of operations.
