[PTI, Monday, 21 June 2010 09:52 No Comment]

A feasibility survey to resume ferry services between Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu after a gap of 27 years would be undertaken soon, officials said.

The proposal was accepted by India and the island nation during Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse’s recent visit to the country, they said.

The service would be between Rameswaram and Talaimannar in Sri Lanka and Tuticorin and Colombo.

The officials from the fisheries department and Tamil Nadu Maritime board said this was in line with the steps taken to export goods from Nagapattinam to Sri Lanka after a four year gap. The next proposal mooted was to resume the ferry service.
