Aizawl, Feb 26 (UNI) Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Veena Sikri today said India is considering to open a full-fledged visa office in NE to facilitate easy travel of the people here to Bangladesh.

Talking to UNI here at the Chief Secretary's residence, Ms Sikri said, ''The Centre has already initiated and proposed to set up a full-fledged high commissioner office in the NE region and now it is up to Bangladesh government to take the initiative.'' ''Setting a Bangladesh High Commission in NE will not only make the visa process easy but also minimise travel for documentation process,'' she added.

She did not reveal where the office would be set up, but said, ''It would be either in Shillong or Guwahati.'' Pointing out to the existing Bangladesh visa office in Agartala, which was not much active at present, she said, ''The office will also be more active very soon.'' ''To expedite the process of setting up a visa office, there will be a discussion in this regard during the high-level delegation meeting between the countries to be held in March,'' the envoy said.
