Agartala: India and Bangladesh have agreed to set up more 'Border Haats' (bazaars) along their border in Tripura, Assam and Meghalaya to boost local trade and economy.

Chaudhury said: "The Tripura government has proposed to set up four 'Border Haats' along the border with Bangladesh."

The 'Border Haats' are to be set up within five kilometers of the international border.

They will sell local agricultural and horticultural products, spices, minor forest products (excluding timber), fresh and dry fish, dairy and poultry products, cottage industry items, wooden furniture, handloom and handicraft items.

Trading in these bazars would be held once or twice a week, and a spending cap of $50 will be imposed per head, reports IANS.
