    Feb 2, 2017- Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Thursday inaugurated long-stalled 220 megawatts Khimti-Dhalkebar transmission line.

    Completion of the project that was halted earlier for the past 17 years due to various reasons including disputes over distribution of compensation for land acquisition for the project was possible following the prompt initiations taken by the government in this regard.

    The halted project has been completed within six months of its resumption, said the project chief Shyam Kumar Yadav.

    Around 700 MW can be supplied through the double-circuit transmission line that has been constructed with grant amount of Rs 2.13 billion from World Bank. The project had started in 2063 B.S. RSS
