Birgunj, June 3 An Integrated Check Post was inaugurated by chief of Land Port Authority of the Government of India YS Seharawat on the Indian side of the Nepal-India border on Friday. Governments of both the countries had come up with the idea of constructing the ICP to ease import and export of various goods from Nepal, India, and other countries. Though both countries had agreed to operate the custom office together, India unilaterally decided to operate it before the completion of the infrastructure on the Nepali side. “The one sided use of the ICP creates hurdles for Nepal-India trade transit,” said Birgunj Chamber of Commerce and Industry Pradeep Kedia.
