Grievances re-examined

KATHMANDU: National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) has re-examined the complaints lodged by 126,326 earthquake-affected households in 14 worst-hit districts.

After receiving grievances from the earthquake-affected people, NRA had deployed 332 engineers to the districts to re-examine their complaints on July 18.

According to Manohar Ghimire, chief of information management department of NRA, 250 engineers are already back and the remaining are also returning after finishing the task. He assumed that a total of 140,000 households will be re-examined in the final stage. He informed that the entire data will be accommodated into the NRA’s server and the affected people who meet the eligibility criteria will be listed in beneficiaries’ list.

“If any new beneficiaries are identified, they will get Rs 300,000 as housing grant similar to those that were identified earlier,” Ghimire informed.

The 14 most-affected districts by the devastating quakes in 2015 were Bhaktapur, Chitwan, Dhading, Dolakha, Gorkha, Kathmandu, Kaverpalanchowk, Lalitpur, Makawanpur, Nuwakot, Ramechhap, Sindhuli, Sindhupalchowk and Rasuwa.
