Nepal-India Power Trade Pact extended for three months

KATHMANDU: The electricity trade deal between Nepal and India has been prolonged for three months.

Usually renewed yearly, this time the agreement has been extended for a shorter term.

Nepal can import up to 554 megawatts of electricity from India under the renewed pact, as confirmed by the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources, and Irrigation.

Initially signed in 2078 BS, the agreement facilitates electricity exchange between the two nations.

This extension ensures a steady flow of electricity imports, crucial as Nepal's hydroelectric output decreases during the dry season, requiring supplementation from neighboring countries to meet demand.
