Private ferry service between India and Sri Lanka, which had been stopped for two years due to the ethnic war in Sri Lanka, will resume tomorrow with a ferry carrying 300 tonnes of goods leaving for Colombo.

M V N Raj TPN 241 will leave for Sri Lanka from the Old Port here carrying goods such as onion, potato, corn, and turmeric, officials said.

It will take the ferry 24 hours to reach Colombo, they said. A goods ferry service between Tuticorin and the Maldives is already in operation.
