Nepal to export additional 325 MW of electricity to India
KATHMANDU: India has given permission to Nepal to sell an additional 325 MW of electricity to its competing market.
In a press conference organised at the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation on Wednesday, Minister Pampha Bhusal said that India has granted permission to sell 325 MW of electricity to Nepal.
Nepal had been urging India to buy additional electricity since India gave permission to sell 39 MW of electricity earlier.
Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, during his three-day official visit to India, had held a discussion regarding the buying and selling of electricity with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.
Following the discussion, India’s Energy Ministry gave permission to sell electricity to the Indian market from the Nepal Electricity Authority.
