NEW DELHI: Easing visa restrictions for citizens of Bangladesh, India on Sunday signed a revised travel agreement with Bangladesh.
The agreement was signed between the two countries in Dhaka in presence of Bangladesh's Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan and union Home Minister Rajnath Singh who is the neighbouring country on a three-day visit.
Under the Revised Travel Arrangement (RTA)-2018, freedom fighters and elderly Bangladeshi nationals will get five year multiple visa from India, the Daily Star reported. Singh and Khan also held the 6th Home Minister Level Talks between India and Bangladesh.
During the day, Singh offered prayers at Dhakeshwari Temple. He also visited Bangabandhu Museum where paid tributes to the father of the Nation of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. "Deeply moved to see the site where he and his family members were martyred. His contribution to Bangladesh and South Asia will always be remembered," Singh tweeted.
