India-Bangladesh train services to resume from May 29
New Delhi, May 19: Passenger train services between India and Bangladesh will resume from May 29, an official order said.

The services of NJP-Dhaka Mitali Express will be started on June 1 following the scheduled virtual flagging off of Mitali Express by the railway ministers of India and Bangladesh from Rail Bhawan.
