The pipeline was first proposed by India in the early 2000s but rejected by the government of Bangladesh. A pipeline was again proposed in talks between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in 2015. It is part of India's Hydrocarbon Vision 2030 plan that was released in 2016. In December 2018 India's Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan stated that India was continuing to explore ways to expand its gas network to Bangladesh through Myanmar. However, as of August 2021, no updates on revival of this trilateral pipeline deal are publicly available and the project is therefore considered shelved.
