  • Significantly, India has been enjoying a high favourable balance of trade (IRS981680 lakh, average annual) during 2014-15 and 2018-19.
  • The average annual trade of India with Pakistan through Wagah-Attari land route (ICP Attari) during 2016-17 and 2017-18 was to the tune of Indian IRS406330 lakh.
  • Also, as very aptly presented by Prof Ghuman and Haqiqat Sahib in their study, there exist natural synergies between West and East Punjab and it would again be a pity if people in the two Punjabs cannot benefit from these commonalities or to cement and build on their natural affinity and warmth towards each other.
