In a bid to ensure that the country meets its ambitious hydropower production plan and boosts its economy, power producers have urged the government to let the private sector invest in transmission lines.

During the budget announcement for the current fiscal, the government had opened the door for the private sector to invest in transmission lines. However, the government failed to implement the provision and power producers have urged the government to fulfil its commitment in the budget for the next fiscal.
