The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs of the Government of India, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the proposed investment for the transmission line of the Arun-3 Hydropower Project in Nepal worth Rs 1236.13 crore (around $177.48 million).
This financing will support construction of the 217 kilometer transmission line for a 400 kilovolt D/C in Nepal. It will help evacuate power generated from Nepal to India, via Dhalkebar (Nepal) to Muzzaffarpur (India).
This project will further bolster economic ties between the two countries.
