Feasibility study on the Indo-Lanka ferry service

Jun 19, 2010 11:11:35 AM - itnnews.lk

India has initiated a feasibility study to launch the Indo- Sri Lanka ferry service once again.

The Hindu newspaper reported that the Indian Government has issued the relevant instructions to the Tamil Nadu authorities in this connection. An agreement was reached to launch the ferry service during the visit of President Rajapaksa to India.

Accordingly ferry services from Rameshwaram to Talai-mannar and Colombo and Tuticorin will be launched. The Hindu has said that the study will focus on public demand, the commercial requirements between the two countries and the fares amongst other things.
