Boat service between Sri Lanka and India

A boat service between Thalaimannar and Rameshwaram, India, said Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Northern Development Minister Douglas Devananda.

He said this boat service would be launched to facilitate the easy travel for almost 15,000 Sri Lankan pilgrims who travel to various religious places in India annually.

The minister said this addressing a media briefing held in Jaffna recently.

He noted that through this ferry service, it would provide easy travel to India for pilgrims, general public and businessmen.

He also added that this would also make it easier for Sri Lankan refugees living in India to return home.
