India and Nepal signed Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) worth more than ₹101 million to expedite the progress on three projects in education and healthcare and to provide safe drinking water in India’s neighbouring nation.
“The implementation of these projects reflects the continued support of the Indian government in bolstering efforts of the Government of Nepal in the upliftment of its people,” said the Indian embassy in a statement.
“As close neighbours, India and Nepal share wide-ranging and multi-sectoral cooperation. The construction of the above projects will provide better education facilities, better health care facilities and safe drinking water facilities for the local community and improve the quality of life for people in Nepal at a total estimated cost of Rs 101.79 million,” the statement further said.
During the period 2003-2022, India has undertaken over 532 High Impact Development Projects (HICDPs) in the neighbouring country and completed 476 projects in sectors like education, connectivity, healthcare, sanitation, drinking water, and the creation of other public utilities at the grassroots level in all seven provinces of Nepal.
