Border Hat on the border of Feni and Tripura has been launched since January 13, 2015. A border haat is held every Tuesday from 10 am to 4 pm on the border between Chagalnaiya in Feni and Srinagar in India. The structure of the Border Hat has been built right in the middle of the border between the two countries. Although only one day a week this place becomes bustling. Paddy fields all around, a few half-baked houses in the middle of it. On one side are Bangladeshi vendors, on the other side are Indian vendors. Buyers enter the market by showing pass or identity cards to BGB or BSF.
At the border market, Bangladeshi traders sell chanachur, chips, potatoes, readymade garments, fish, dried fish, chicken, eggs, soap, beans, vegetables, towels and towels, wooden tables and chairs, and household iron products.
