The Reserve Bank of India has called an end to barter trade at the Indo-Myanmar Border, permissible since 2000. Noting that with a sufficiently diversified trade basket and the presence of banking establishments, it is appropriate for the system of trade to switch over to the normal system from 1 December 2015. With the barter system of trade, goods exchanged between the two countries were devoid of any mention in the banking system and were also not counted in trade statistics.
