India on July 15, 2018 signed a revised travel agreement with Bangladesh to ease visa restrictions for citizens from the neighbouring country.

The agreement was signed between the two countries in Dhaka in presence of visiting Home Minister Rajnath Singh and his counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan.

Rajnath Singh is here on a three-day visit.

Under the Revised Travel Arrangement (RTA)-2018, freedom fighters and elderly Bangladeshi nationals will get five year multiple visa from India, Daily Star reported.

Singh and Khan also held the 6th Home Minister Level Talks between India and Bangladesh.

Singh offered prayers at Dhakeshwari Temple here.

He also visited Bangabandhu Museum where paid tributes to the father of the Nation of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“Deeply moved to see the site where he and his family members were martyred. His contribution to Bangladesh and South Asia will always be remembered,” Singh tweeted.
