India has pledged a financial assistance of Rs 48.84 million to Nepal for the construction of a college building in the capital Kathmandu. This Koteshwor Multiple Campus was established in 1990 and is a non-profit, non-governmental, service-oriented community college situated on the outskirt of Kathmandu. For the project, ambassador of India to Nepal Ranjit Rae laid the foundation stone of the building the Campus in Kathmandu district. The campus building is constructed with financial aid from India and the project is being implemented through District Development Committee of Kathmandu.
This project assistance comes under the India-Nepal Economic Cooperation Programme which has an outlay of over Rs 76 billion with more than 529 large and small development projects completed or being implemented in almost all the districts of Nepal. These development projects, mainly in the sectors of education, health, and infrastructure development have been undertaken in response to local needs and in partnership with the Government of Nepal.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the country to which India has provided a financial assistance of Rs. 48 mn for the construction of a college building?
2. Who is the ambassador of India to Nepal?
