The second Indian consignment of emergency relief materials for earthquake-affected families in Nepal was handed over by the Deputy Chief of Mission, Prasanna Shrivastava to the Chief District Officer of Banke  Shravan Kumar Pokhrel in the presence of Nepalgunj Mayor Prashant Bista.

"The consignment of 9 tonnes of relief material was transported to Nepalgunj by a special Indian Air Force C-130 and comprised essential medical and hygiene supplies, tents, sleeping bags and blankets," read the statement issued by the Indian Embassy in Nepal.

This is part of the Government of India's efforts to support the Government of Nepal in the wake of the earthquake in Jajarkot on November 3.

The first consignment of more than 11 tonnes relief materials provided by India which included tents, tarpaulin sheets, blankets, and sleeping bags along with essential medicines and medical equipment was handed over to the Government of Nepal on 5 November 2023.
