The cheque of NRP 19, 50,000.00 was handed over to Mr. Ramchandra Bishwokarma, the Bank manager of Nepal Bank Limited, Melamchi, Sindhupalchowk. After a first tranche of NRP 50,000.00, the second tranche of NRP 1, 50,000.00 is deposited in the beneficiary’s account as per the government regulations for executing the shelter reconstruction of the earthquake affected.
The second tranche is granted to the beneficiaries who have completed foundation work or more as minimum requirement for second installment. There are thirteen beneficiaries who are eligible for the same. Rest of the affected will receive the second tranche as soon as they complete foundation work. Lack of sufficient and skilled workers, and unavailability of local resources for building shelters have resulted in delayed construction work.
