India and Bangladesh will start a cruise service from 29th March 2019, that would take passengers through the Sunderbans to Dhaka.
India and Bangladesh this initiative aims to strengthen inland waterway routes between both the countries.
Other than road and rail, India and Bangladesh also have a very strong power connectivity through waterways.

India and Bangladesh last year on 25 October 2018, have signed agreements for increasing waterway connectivity.
