Nepal nod for Reliance, Satluj to invest billions in cement and hydropower projects.
Two prominent Indian business houses have received Nepal government's approval to invest NRs 144 billion for setting up cement and hydropower projects in the country.

The Nepal Investment Board (NIB), headed by Prime Minister Sushil Koirala, has cleared the decks for Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group for an investment of NRs 40 billion (USD 400 million) in southern Nepal.

The NIB has approved the Indian company's proposal for setting up the multi-billion dollar project in Nepal recently, according to a statement by the board.

The Reliance Group will soon conduct the study for constructing the plant in central or eastern Terai region of the southern plain.

Similarly, the board has also approved the Project Development Agreement for the construction of 900-MW Arun Third Project being developed by Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVN), India.

As per the draft agreement, Nepal will receive 21.9 per cent or 197 MW of electricity free of cost from the project, besides revenue and other facilities.

The Indian company will invest NRs 104 billion on the project.

Besides, Nepal will get a total economic benefit of USD 3.5 billion which includes royalty fees, tax and free power from the implementation of the period over the concessional period of 24 years.
