Indian High Commissioner Pinak Ranjan Chakravarty called on communications adviser Ghulam Quader Monday, to discuss a number of ongoing problems facing passengers on the Dhaka-Kolkata rail route.

Emerging from the Secretariat the Indian envoy told reporters: "We hope to solve the persisting problems within six months."

"We have talked about reducing travel time by two hours, setting up platforms at the border stations and enhancing various facilities including bringing a change to the checking of visas and tickets," Chakravarty said.

The diplomat said there were huge numbers of Bangladeshi passengers travelling on the Maitree Express; they faced problems due to the location and lack of manpower at the Indian visa office in Dhaka.

"I have asked the adviser for help in taking proper initiatives to solve the matter," he said.

The communications adviser did not make any comment to reporters after the meeting.
