India has sent the third tranche of earthquake relief support to Nepal, officials said on Friday.

The over 12-tonne tranche includes blankets, sleeping bags, tents, and essential medical supplies, among others. 

The third tranche reached Nepal by a special Indian Air Force (IAF) C-130 flight on November 9.

"As a First Responder, India has provided 33 tonnes of emergency relief materials for the earthquake-affected families in Nepal through three special Indian Air Force flights," read a statement issued by the Indian Embassy in Nepal.

"The support included tents and tarpaulin sheets, blankets and sleeping bags as well as vital medicines, and medical equipment such as surgical equipment, portable ventilators as well as hygiene supplies to meet the urgent requirements of the earthquake affected families," the statement said.
