The first Border Haat (market) along Tripura-Bangladesh frontier was opened on 13 January 2015. This haat is located at Srinagar (Tripura, India) - Purba Madhugram (Feni, Bangladesh).

It was inaugurated by Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman and her Bangladeshi counterpart Tofaile Ahmed by opening the plaque of the border haat.
This is the third border haat on India-Bangladesh Border. The other two cross border haats with Bangladesh are located on the Meghalaya - Bangladesh border at Kalaichar (India) - Baliamari (Bangladesh) and Balat (India) - Dolora (Bangladesh).

Similar fourth border haat facility is being developed at Tripura's Kamlasagar, bordering Bangladesh's Tarapur Kashba in Brahmanbaria district.

India and Bangladesh on 23 October 2010 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Border Haats and Border Trade along the India-Bangladesh border.  The MoU permits traders of border communities of both India and Bangladesh to trade in local produce and transact business worth 100 US dollar per day.
