India renews electricity export permission to neighbouring Nepal for next three month

India extended its helping arm towards Nepal by renewing electricity export permission to the neighbouring nation for three months amid ongoing power crisis in the country, media reports said.

The renewal came two days before the formal expiration of the existing agreement, which was extended for a year in 2023, reported ANI.

The existing permission was about to end on March 31.

Officials from both Nepal and India were in discussion to renew the agreement, which took three months to form, officials confirmed to the Indian news agency.

“The Indian side, after three months of our relentless effort to renew it has finally resulted in extension of the export permission by three months to June 30 this year. Nepal will be importing 500 megawatts of electricity through the Dhalkebar-Muzaffarpur cross-border transmission line and 54 megawatts via Tanakpur,” Chandan Kumar Ghosh, the spokesperson at the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), confirmed ANI.

Nepal, the Himalayan neighbour of India, depends on New Delhi for electricity during the dry season.
