Agartala: The Kamalasagar-Kasba border haat in Tripura’s Sepahijala district which was shut during the Covid-19 pandemic is expected to reopen by next month, an official said on Tuesday.
Haats are weekly markets along the India-Bangladesh border where vendors from both sides sell their ware.
The border haat at Srinagar in South Tripura’s Sabroom subdivision has already reopened in May.
“Today, the joint border haat management committee held a meeting at Kasba and discussed reopening the trade facility at the earliest. In the meeting, the committee decided to undertake repair work at the haat before reopening it,”Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Bishalgarh Binoy Bhusan Das, told PTI over the telephone.
An Indo-Bangla joint team will visit the Kamalasagar-Kasba border haat by next week to prepare an estimate of the repair works.
