runs driving his truck across states never asking questions why people order what they do He does what he is told: drop the consignment get back prepare for the next run The cargo of red chillies turns his eyes red flares the nostrils but he never complains It is the only job he knows one which keeps the family going Yet Habib despairs each time he is told to head to Raxaul a town in Bihar which sits on the Nepal border and is 200 km from state capital Patna Because 30 km before Raxaul the NH-28A disappears and morphs into a dirt track the clouds of dust forcing him to peer through the windscreen Pebbles fly dangerously from beneath the tyres as he drives past boards which say work on the national highway is in progress But he recalls having seen the boards on his earlier runs The road looks the same Bustling Birgunj is the commercial capital of Nepal An industrial corridor stretches from here to Pathlaiya Closer to Raxaul the dirt track gives way to pools of rain water Slush leaps on to his truck as tankers container carriers jeeps race past to join the queue to enter Birgunj the gateway to Nepal Habib too joins the race slowing down only when he enters Raxaul bazaar He knows the wait to the border check point has begun “The last time I was here the queue was so long that I had to wait five days to enter Birgunj Hopefully I will get there sooner this time Why can’t they fix this road make the border crossing simpler” The 68-kilometre national highway is mostly a dirt track near Raxaul The queue to Birgunj is already 3 km long packed with smoke-belching oil tankers emulsion tankers LPG tankers trucks carrying spices and goods that you and I need routinely daily The registration plates tell you that they are from every part of the country — Andhra Pradesh West Bengal Nagaland Uttar Pradesh Haryana Gujarat Rajasthan the list as long as the queue and in no order The tankers and trucks snake through the town taking up half the road and leaving the other half to a two-way traffic of rickshaws cycles motorcycles Boleros Scorpios If the honks and yells don’t upset you the stench from the overflowing drains will So will the heaps of garbage vegetable waste lining the road Birgunj has regulated traffic own FM station busy bazaars and a medical college that draws students from Bihar This is the lifeline of Nepal the NH-28A which accounts for 70 per cent of trade between the two neighbours — and the one gateway to Nepal which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not see when he lands in Kathmandu on Sunday to improve ties with a country which has not had an Indian prime minister calling in 17 years Inder Kumar Gujral visited Nepal in 1997 and Atal Bihari Vajpayee only for the SAARC Summit in 2002 The wait to border check point begins from Raxaul bazaar with traders from Nepal shocked at the mess The 68-km-long NH-28A connects the towns of Pipra and Raxaul in East Champaran district Tantia Constructions is tasked with constructing the highway from Piprakothi but the town itself lies ignored Raxaul is a picture of urban decay of a hopelessness no border town knows long forsaken by the State and left to wallow in its squalour The district administration sits 50 km away in Motihari a two-and-half hour ride on what passes for a national highway Bimal Rungta whose family runs the Amardeep clothes showroom in a lane off Lohapatti Road says he prefers to walk and take a rickshaw to Birgunj across the border “It can take you three hours by car to cover 3 km to Birgunj Given that crores are made through trade via Raxaul this town should have had a VIP road” Rungta who is also the secretary of the Raxaul textile chamber of commerce says the town has 12 hours of power cuts everyday “I have installed three generator sets to keep my showroom going” The town has no decent school or college no family restaurant not even a park where children can spend an afternoon Most in town prefer to give the local cinema hall a miss “This is no place to bring up children I have sent my son to Bangalore where he studies in Class XII” says Rungta His brother Pradeep left Raxaul for Surat five years ago and is currently visiting Bimal “I handle the Surat operations of the family business My son Chetan helps Pradeep here You can’t compare life in Surat with what we have here” He pulls out a cellphone and shows a video clip of highrises broad roads gleaming cars Surat is a world removed In the bazaar traders speak in unison: “Raxaul has known nothing except despair The integrated check point at the border is still to come up We thought the rail upgrade after the gauge conversion from Darbhanga to Raxaul via Sitamarhi would help change lives But now the gates remain shut because more trains have to pass through There is no sign of the overbridge that was promised How can we prosper if we have to wait so long for wholesalers from Birgunj to come and buy our goods” *** Prosperity lies 3 km away across the open border Bustling Birgunj is Nepal’s commercial capital the second largest city in the country after Kathmandu Like every boomtown it has its share of problems power cuts and an infrastructure struggling to cope with the demands of a growing population fuelled by migrants in search of jobs But there is an air of optimism An industrial corridor is stretching out to Pathlaiya more and more firms are investing in textile steel cigarettes cement pharmaceuticals even ghee Unlike Raxaul Birgunj has traffic under control enforced strictly by policemen on the roads Its hotels and restaurants not in the same league as the ones in Kathmandu are packed offering clean rooms and decent meals Mobile service provider Ncell does brisk business offering pre-paid SIM cards to tourists and travellers who have proper identification papers The town has its own FM station its bazaars are busy and the schools alive Many from Bihar study at the medical college in Birgunj There is even an airport at Simara with daily flights to Kathmandu Those who prefer the road take the Tribhuvan highway to Kathmandu covering 180 km in a little over four hours A shorter ride is via Hetauda and the Kulekhani hydel power station India has a consulate in Birgunj tasked with the implementation and monitoring of assisted projects in eight districts under its jurisdiction — Parsa Bara Chitwan Sarlahi Dhanusha Rautahat Makwanpur and Mahottari These are essentially small development projects little steps to help Nepal shut out its recent past the sufferings of a decade-long insurgency followed by a political uncertainty that refuses to die Yet Birgunj can’t fathom why India has abandoned Raxaul “Border towns are mirrors They create first impressions so they should be managed well Many in Nepal who have never seen a railway train go to Raxaul to travel to towns in India But quite a few return shocked by the filth at the railway station the mess in the town Is this what India looks like they ask How do I explain your metros to them if their first impression of India is so negative We are well-wishers of India you can even call us her ambassadors But this doesn’t help How can it take so long to fix a border road Thirty trucks bring my goods every month Each takes four days to cross the border” says Ashok Kumar Temani chairman of the Yash Group which trades in industrial chemicals and hardware and manufactures candies and bubble gum An executive member of the Federation of Nepal Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FNCCI) Temani led a delegation to New Delhi last September: “I even suggested to our counterparts in FICCI that they open an office on the Raxaul-Birgunj border to get first-hand account of the problems we face We met Indian government officials told them how the conditions in Raxaul were hurting not just Birgunj but all of Nepal” Sunil Kumar Kanth and Manoj Upadhyay of the Birgunj Chamber of Commerce and Industries agree with Temani “It is the most active point on the Indo-Nepal border India is upgrading roads everywhere But look at NH-28A it’s laughable It affects not just business and trade but our social cultural religious and political ties Pilgrims use this border people from Nepal go to India for medical treatment The least they can do is expedite the road work and clearance of goods” says Upadhyay He estimates that 1000 to 1200 trucks enter Birgunj everyday In February this year chamber officials met MPs on the Indian side of the border and signed “a memorandum of understanding to work together to resolve issues” These included making the Raxaul airstrip operational expediting work on the integrated checkpost building an overbridge at the Raxaul railway crossing developing the railway station with trains for other destinations in India and curbing crime in the two border towns by posting an SP-rank officer in Raxaul Indian officials admit Raxaul desperately needs a facelift especially the highway stretch from Motihari to fast-track border movements Work on the integrated checkpost hasn’t quite moved at the pace it should have But they point to the dry port established in Birgunj for handling of goods Bilateral trade takes place in Indian rupee or convertible currency The Nepal Rastra Bank has had a fixed exchange rate since 1993: 1 INR=16 NR Traders in Birgunj track developments in India very closely They are counting on the regime change in Delhi and Modi’s visit to Nepal to bring some cheer to this border crossing “India needs to invest not just in Nepal but also in its border towns It will help transform our country If they don’t do that acchhe din kaise aayenge Not on this side nor across the border” says Upadhyay Waiting in his truck in Raxaul Habib Sheikh cannot agree more For

chairman of Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) U K Sinha expressed concern over the “worrying levels” of “Dabba Trading” or illegal trading that is happening in Gujarat and added that the market regulator will tackle the illegal activity in the state with an iron hand Sinha was in Rajkot to meet and address the concerns of entrepreneurs connected with the MSME sector in the state “I also had a meeting with brokers from Rajkot and there is one thing that has been brought to my notice It is a matter of concern that dabba trading is rampant in Rajkot and neighbouring areas We are concerned about it and we are going to act strictly against them in collaboration with the state government police department and with the new powers vested in us” Sinha said Dabba trading is an illegal and parallel activity where shares of a company are traded bypassing the stock exchanges free of all rules and regulations The dabba operators office is like any other broker’s office having terminals linked to stock exchanges showing market rates of stocks However the difference is that the investor’s trades bypass the exchanges and are noted only in the books of the dabba operator There are also no guarantees of pay-in and pay-out as there are no written contracts or invoices or bills issued The settlement cycles are decided by the dabba operators themselves When asked if SEBI has any estimates of the quantum of dabba trading that happens in Gujarat Sinha said “I have no estimates But the people whom I have been meeting since yesterday (in Gujarat) are telling me that it is quite rampant… it is in worrying proportions” “This kind of activity might be happening in other parts of the country But the intensity here is more” he said listing out various measures that SEBI has taken to prevent the inflow of black money into the capital markets Apart from brokers Sinha along with other SEBI officials have met over 100 entrepreneurs connected with MSME units from Gandhinagar Morbi Wankaner Rajkot and Jamnagar during the last two days in the city here Talking about his personal visit to some of the MSME units in Rajkot on Tuesday the SEBI chairman told a gathering of representatives from MSME units at a seminar titled ‘SME funding: Role of Capital Markets Conclave’ “There is huge potential and tremendous energy as far as entrepreneurship (in the state) is concerned… In matters of technology and marketing you have been masters You have been able to meet the domestic as well as the global challenge” Rajkot is only the second industrial cluster after Coimbatore in the country where SEBI has held such an event “Some of you have expressed concerns about the cost of listing (MSME units on stock exchanges) I assure you all that we will work towards it” Sinha said addiing that 84 MSME units (78 on BSE and six in NSE) have been listed so far As on November 17 2014 MSMEs have raised around Rs 750 crore through listings in MSME platforms of BSE and NSE Sinha also informed that 14-odd MSME units have also registered on the Institutional Trading Platform (ITP) of the exchanges which is a platform created by SEBI for allowing MSMEs to list without an Initial Public Offer Officials including Sinha and Chitra Ramkrishna MD & CEO of National Stock Exchange (NSE) who spoke to a gathering of entrepreneurs on Tuesday also emphasised the need for the MSMEs to move from sourcing finance from the banks and state financial corporations to the capital markets “Last decade it was easier for companies to raise money from banks Going forward this will not be easy as banks asses their risk weightage and tighten lending norms” Ms Ramkrishna of NSE said Officials said that during the last five years the quantum of funding to MSME units by PSU banks had grown by 23 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Press Trust of India | Phagwara | Updated: April 26 2014 4:58 pm
