The second meeting of the Nepal-India Oversight Mechanism, held on 30 January 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal, reviewed progress of India-funded economic and development projects in Nepal, and agreed to expedite implementation of these projects for timely completion. The meeting was led by Mr. Shanker Das Bairagi, Foreign Secretary, Nepal, and Mr. Ranjit Rae, Indian Ambassador to Nepal.
