Nepal and India have amended a bilateral transit treaty
Nepal and India have amended a bilateral transit treaty to facilitate the export of goods from a third country through India.
only goods of Nepalese origin were allowed to be exported through India to third countries. The amendment to the "export procedure" in the Memorandum to the Protocol to the Treaty of Transit of 1999 will facilitate the transit of goods of third country origin exported from Nepal, said a statement issued on 31-01-2014 by the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu.
This restriction has now been removed and now goods of non-Nepalese origin would be allowed transit through India for export to third countries.
It will also allow the movement of diplomatic cargo exported from Nepal and transiting through India.
