The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi and the Prime Minister of Bangladesh,  Sheikh Hasina will jointly dedicate the Petrapole Integrated Check Post through video-conferencing on Thursday afternoon. The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Ms. Mamata Banerjee will also join the video-conference from Kolkata.

Petrapole-Benapole is an important land border crossing for India-Bangladesh trade. More than 50% of the India-Bangladesh trade passes through Petrapole. Trade worth more than Rs. 15000 Crore takes place through the Petrapole ICP, which is more than all the other Indian Land Ports and Land Customs Stations put together. Approximately 15 lakh people and 150,000 trucks cross Petrapole-Benapole every year.

The Petrapole ICP will provide better facilities for effective and efficient discharge of functions such as security, immigration, customs, quarantine, etc. while also providing support facilities for smooth cross-border movement of persons, goods and transport.

Petrapole ICP will be the second ICP on the India-Bangladesh border after the Agartala ICP at the Agartala (India)-Akhaura (Bangladesh) land border. It will also be the biggest land port in South Asia.

The commissioning of the Petrapole ICP will also serve to foster greater economic integration and connectivity between India and Bangladesh.
