India has embarked on implementation of the BBIN motor pact with Bangladesh and Nepal, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said .
India in June 2015 had signed the major sub-regional transport project, Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) Motor Vehicles Agreement (MVA), for seamless transit of passenger and cargo vehicles among them. However, Bhutan could not get public and parliamentary support for it.
About BBIN MVA:
