The West Bengal government is awaiting approval from the Ministry of External Affairs to start river cruise services with Bangladesh, a state government official said today.

"Many have shown interest in starting river cruise service so we approached the central government for permission. The matter is now with the external affairs ministry," State Transport Secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay told reporters.

He said cruise operators are ready with all the plans and would start services in the Kolkata-Dhaka route as soon as they get approval.
