    Ninety-two per cent of work under the Upper Tamakoshi hydropower project is learnt to have been competed so far.

    The 456 MW hydropower project is being built at Lamabagar of Bigu Rural Municipality-1 in Dolakha. The project was to be completed by the end of the last fiscal year. However, it could not happen due to the 2015 earthquakes and the ensuing border blockade.

    According to the project spokesperson Dr Ganesh Neupane, around 38.83 billion rupees has been spent on the project so far. “Till now, a little more than 92 per cent construction work has been completed,” he added.

    The project is expected to come into operation from January, 2019.
