Kathmandu [Nepal], March 31 (ANI): As part of efforts to boost the education sector in Nepal, a new building for the Shree Rashtriya Primary School in the Chitwan district has been constructed with assistance from India.
An Indian Embassy release said that the building was constructed as part of development cooperation between India and Nepal.
"The new building of the Shree Rashtriya Primary School, Sultana (renamed as Basic School Sultana) Khairahani VDC-5, Chitwan district was built with the Indian government's financial assistance of Nepali Rs 18.66 million under 'Nepal-Bharat Development Cooperation'," it said.
The new building was jointly inaugurated on Wednesday by Nitesh Kumar, Consul General of India in Birgunj and Manejer Chaudhary, Chairman, Ward No.7, Khairahani Municipality, Chitwan.
"The Government of India's grant under 'Nepal-Bharat Development Cooperation' was utilized for construction of double-storey school building having 12 classrooms and sanitation facilities," the release said.
The project was taken up as a high-impact community development project under an agreement between the government of India and Nepal.
