India today pledged financial assistance worth 41.2 million Nepali Rupees for the construction of a campus building in central Nepal.
Indian Ambassador to Nepal Manjeev Singh Puri laid the foundation stone for construction of Adarsh Multiple Campus building at Gajuri Bazar, Dhading 120-km west of Kathmandu.
The campus building is being constructed with the financial assistance of NRs 41.2 million extended by the Government of India under its small development project scheme in Nepal, according to a statement issued by the Indian Embassy here.
The campus, where more than 200 students are enrolled under the faculty of business studies, was established in 2006.
The construction of the new campus building would benefit the students of the 18 Village Development Committees especially the girls belonging to the underprivileged groups like Chepang, Tamang, and other Janjati and Dalit communities who are enrolled in the campus.
The new infrastructure would provide much needed classroom space and would create an improved environment for learning and contribute to the development of the education facilities in Dhading district.
