India has sought transit facilities to third countries as well as its northeastern states through 15 road and railway routes and ports in Bangladesh, a report media said here today.

The Financial Express newspaper said India submitted a proposal to Dhaka seeking to use the road, railway and facilities of Bangladesh's Chittagong and Mongla ports to carryout its exports and imports with third countries and transport goods to and from its southeastern region.
