Since 18 years, Nepal was keeping a request to put petroleum pipeline from Amalekhgunj to Raksaul and send the petrol to Nepal through that pipeline. After 18 years, in Shrawan 28, India’s Ministries’ Meeting decided to build the pipeline.
There is a difference in 41Km distance from Amalekhgunj to Raksaul. Among that, 39 Km area lies in Nepal. That pipeline will be kept by India only. After India make a pipeline for Nepal in their financial transactions, until 15 years, Nepal will have to buy petroleum substance from India alone. Today also Nepal has been buying petroleum substance from India only
For pipeline construction, 320 billion Nepali Rupees will be paid by India. Within two years, there is a provision of putting pipeline.
In Nepal, 70% of engines are brought from Raksaul area only. After pipeline expansion, there is an expectation of fewer expenses.
