Coronavirus: India-Afghanistan Trade Via Wagah Border Likely to be Resumed After Eid

The trade between India and Afghanistan through Attari-Wagah border, 28 km from Amritsar, is expected to be resumed after Eid-ul-Fitr holidays (from May 25 to 27) in Pakistan.

“We have already got a letter from the Centre, instructing us to be prepared as the trade between the two countries will be started soon,” said a senior Indian customs official, who didn’t wish to be named.

The central government had suspended cross-border trade through the Attari integrated check-post (ICP), which facilitates India’s trade with Pakistan and Afghanistan, on March 13 as a precautionary measure amid the coronavirus pandemic.
