Dhankuta, September 20

The first industrial gram in the country established at Dhankuta Municipality has yet to come into operation.

The industrial gram was established with the aim of promoting small and cottage industry based on local raw materials. But, the industry has not come into operation due to lack of working procedures. The small and cottage industry development committee branch office, Dhankuta, said construction of buildings in the first phase was over one month ago, but the industries have yet to be established in the newly constructed gram. The industrial gram cannot run without working procedures.

The construction of the industrial gram started before the government forwarded the slogan of ‘one local level, one industrial gram’. The government had decided to establish industrial grams in Surkhet and Dhankuta in the first phase.
