Superb video with nice info.
See The India - Nepal Border From A Train (Near Barhni, UP) | 22921 BDTS-GKP Antyodaya Express click here

View the international border between Indian and Nepal from the train, 22921 Bandra Terminus - Gorakhpur Antyodaya Express.

India–Nepal border is an open international border running between India and Nepal. The 1,770 km (1,099.83 mi) long border includes the Himalayan territories as well as Indo-Gangetic Plain. The current border was delimited after the Sugauli treaty of 1816 between Nepal and the British Raj. Following Indian independence, the current border was recognised as the border between Nepal and the Republic of India.

There are two existing territorial disputes between India and Nepal, over the Kalapani territory, a 35-square-kilometre (14 sq mi) area at the India–Nepal–China trijunction in North West Nepal, and Susta, a 20-square-kilometre (7.7 sq mi)–140-square-kilometre (54 sq mi) area in Southern Nepal.

There are several major border crossings that the Indian Integrated Check Posts (ICP) use for processing cargo customs and immigration entry for citizens of third countries. These are, from west to east:
1. Banbasa in Champawat district, Uttarakhand, India - Kanchanpur District, Sudurpashchim Province, Nepal
2. Rupaidiha in Bahraich district, Uttar Pradesh - Nepalganj in Banke District, Nepal
3. Sonauli in Maharajganj district, Uttar Pradesh, India - Belahia, Siddharthanagar in Rupandehi District, Nepal
4. Raxaul in East Champaran district, Bihar, India - Birgunj, Nepal (also known as the 'Gateway of Nepal')
5. Bhitthamore in Sitamarhi district, Bihar, India - Malibara, Jaleshwar in Mahottari District, Nepal
6. Jogbani in Araria district, Bihar, India - Biratnagar, Nepal
7. Panitanki in Darjeeling district, West Bengal, India - Kakarbhitta, Nepal

The India–Nepal border is relatively peaceful. Indian and Nepali nationals do not need passports or visas to enter each other's countries, and tens of thousands of people cross the border every day for tourism and commerce.

The Indian side of the border is regulated by Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) along with local police. The Nepali side of the border is regulated by the Armed Police Force (APF) along with the local branch of Nepal Police. Often SSB (India) and APF (Nepal) perform joint patrols on the border.

On a local level, Indian and Nepali district officials meet regularly to discuss security challenges and other issues on their respective border portions. Such meetings are usually attended by District Magistrates, local SSB representatives, customs chiefs from India including the Chief District Officer (CDO), local APF, Police and custom chiefs from Nepal.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
