Cross-country trains carrying onions have begun to traffic from the Central Railway, with the first train leaving Lasalgaon earlier this week. The train left for Bangladesh loaded with tonnes of onions.
The online meetings with various stakeholders conducted by commercial and operating departments resulted in the exporting of onions to Bangladesh. Darsana, Benapole and Rohanpur stations in Bangladesh received the onions from Bhusaval division of Central Railway, besides also sending them to the markets of Futuha, Dankuni, Changsari, Malda Town and Chitpur in east India.
According to an mid-day.com article, the export train started from Lasalgaon and subsequently from Kherwadi and Niphad stations in Maharashtra with six more trains planned for Bangladesh.
