Press Release: Opening of additional Land Customs Station at Ahllay, Pasakha

Acting in response to the request of the Royal Government of Bhutan, an additional Land Customs station has been opened at Ahllay, Pasakha by the Government of India on 15 July 2020.

This new land route for movement of industrial raw materials and goods destined for Pasakha Industrial Estate will boost bilateral trade & commerce and lead to decongestion of vehicular traffic along the Jaigaon-Phuentsholing route.

Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador of India Ruchira Kamboj said that, “we are very pleased to provide temporary access through Ahllay for the movement of heavy vehicles and trucks from India into Bhutan. Bhutan is India’s closest partner and friend and given the excellent bilateral relationship between our two countries and keeping in view as well the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation, this access to Ahllay should further facilitate trade and commerce between our two countries.”
