The Indian High Commission in Dhaka sent a letter to the shipping ministry on October 18, 2016 requesting the permission.
However, India has urged Bangladesh not to impose any additional fees on imports and exports, customs duties and administrative fees for the facility.
A shipping secretary level meeting was held on November 16, 2015 and exchanged draft Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in New Delhi.
In the Indian High Commission letter, it was stated that as per the MoU, both countries will issue required notification in a mutually agreed time-frame to implement the SOP deal.
Analysts say the tax should be kept in mind when determining the cost of transit because the Bangladesh government will have to develop the necessary infrastructure for providing transit.
Analysts also said India is now transiting its goods in poor infrastructure like narrow roads in Akhaura-Agartala from Kolkata.
They said it has not yet been finalised that how much funds will be given by India for developing roads and highways.
The transit deal between Bangladesh and India was initiated during India Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Dhaka last year.
