The formal meeting will start at 10:45am on September 17 at the BGB headquarters, according to a BGB press release.
BGB Director General (DG) Maj Gen Md Shafeenul Islam will lead an 11-member delegation, while his BSF counterpart Rakesh Asthana will lead a six-member Indian delegation at the conference.

The border conference was postponed on September 13 as the BSF delegation failed to reach Dhaka due to a technical glitch in their aircraft.
