Third transnational transmission line and Tamor Project in priority


    Flag-Pins-Nepal-India_20120210094839The government is set to propose for construction of the 765 KV Lamki-Raebareli transnational transmission line during Modi’s visit as there is potential of generating 4700 MW from the western region and being exported to India. Construction of Dhalkebar-Mujaffarpur transmission line agreed earlier has started just now while even preliminary work for Bardaghat-Gorakhpur 400 KV transmission line has not been started.

    Minister Gyawali revealed that Nepal will request India to construct 252 MW reservoir based Tamor Project. Similarly, Nepal will also urge India to implement the Pancheshwore Multi-purpose Project under the Mahakali Treaty. Feasibility study has showed that 6480 MW can be generated from Pancheswhore Project and both the countries have prepared detailed project reports (DPR) for the project from their side. But the countries have yet to agree on DPR.
