The shopkeepers are happy as earlier they were asked to relocate by the BSF as the market falls within the 150 yards of the international border.
"The fencing has come up at the Zero Line. Illegal trade and cross-border crimes have reduced. We are doing good business," Sujit Modak, a trader in the Mohanpur Market, said.
As per the Indira-Mujib pact of 1972, no permanent structure can be built within the 150 yards of the border.
In 1975, a guideline for the management of the 4000-km-long Indo-Bangla border was formulated by the two countries which also agreed not to construct any permanent structure within the 150-yard limit.
"Following India's request, the Bangladesh government has agreed to allow construction of fencing on Zero-Line in some parts of the state," Tripura Home Secretary Manoj Kumar said.
Fencing in the Sabroom sub-division of South Tripura district, which was suspended for quite some time following objections from the Bangladesh Border Guards, would be started soon, he said.
While fencing on the Zero Line at Mohanpur in West Tripura district and Kailashahar in the newly-formed Unakoti district had almost been completed, work at Kamalasagar in Sipahijala district and Belonia in South Tripura district would be started soon.MORE
