Construction of the Mainahiya (Rupandehi, Nepal)–Sampatiya (Uttar Pradesh, India) 132 kiloVolt transmission line has achieved 60% progress, noted the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA). This transmission line is important to facilitate electricity trade between India and Nepal

The project is estimated to cost around $8 million. It is aimed to be completed by July 2023. Completed works include foundation laid for 44 of 96 towers that will be erected across the 28-km transmission line.
