For the fourth consecutive time, Bangladesh Railway is going to conduct a ‘special mango train’ on Chapainawabganj-Dhaka route via Rajshahi this season. Asim Kumar Talukder who is the general director of the railway’s west zone, stated that they have already begun the preparations for two trains that will move mangoes with a lesser price to ensure the wellbeing of mango farmers and traders.

We are planning to start the train on May 25 because the farmers as well as traders asked them to go ahead with it according to Asim. Western railway officials held an open discussion with mango traders and growers in the Chapainawabganj railway station on Wednesday to discuss the launch of the specially designed mango train.

Prior to 2020 in 2020, in the year 2020, mango specially-designed train rolled out for the first time in order to alleviate the transportation issues of farmers. It also came into service in 2021, and then in 2022 for the second and third times.
