Nuwakot DAO to recollect data of quake survivors

TRISHULI: The District Administration Office (DAO), Nuwakot, said it is going to recollect data of the quake survivors of the April 25 earthquake, as the number of fake kept  rising in a bid to register themselves to get the facilities provided by the government to genuine quake victims.

Chief District Officer Umesh Kumar Dhakal said that the DAO is working to recollect data of the quake survivors amid complaints that genuine quake victims are deprived of facilities given by the government.

He said that the preliminary data that said 60,000 houses were destroyed by the quake completely has changed to 70,000, adding that the number is expected to reach 86,000 if the remaining 10,000 damaged houses separated are to be incorporated in the data.

“We hope that actual number of houses destroyed by the quake will decrease to 55,000 on average if the data is recollected through electronic means,” he added.
