India opens checkposts along Myanmar, Bangladesh
Amid growing bonhomie with Myanmar and Bangladesh, India has opened two immigration checkposts along the borders of the two neighbouring countries.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued separate notifications to set up the two authorised immigration check posts.

The government has designated the Zorinpui land check post in the Lawngtlai district of Mizoram as an authorised immigration checkpost for entry into or exit from India with valid travel documents for all classes of passengers to or from Myanmar, according to one of the notifications.

Zorinpui, 287 km away from the Sittwe Port in Myanmar, was selected for a new land custom station along the Indo-Myanmar border in Mizoram for the Kaladan multi-modal project.

The other notification designates the Kawrpuichhuah land checkpost in Lunglei district of Mizoram as an authorised immigration checkpost for Bangladesh. Kawrpuichhuah lies next to India’s riverine border with Bangladesh.
