It is for the first time that cotton yarn has been sent from India through the rail route to Bangladesh. Earlier, the cotton yarn was being sent by road in small quantities which was expensive.

Moving consignment by goods train required the bulk mobilisation of the cotton yarn. The Indian Railway authorities took the initiative to facilitate movement of small consignments of upto 500 tonnes in each trip and scheduled a special train for Bangladesh.

The consignment will also contribute to the Bangladesh made clothing and textile business.
