NE Group, which has investments in manufacturing and industrial sectors, has raised the size of Indra-Jawahar Medical Treatment Fund at Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj, to Rs10 million from existing Rs 5 million.
NE Group said the size of the fund was doubled to support medical treatment of those children whose parents cannot afford expenses due to their poor financial condition.
The fund was set up by Jawahar Devi Shrestha in remembrance of her late

NE Group Managing Director and former president of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Rabi Bhakta Shrestha said the size of the fund was enlarged to commemorate the 93rd birthday of late Indra Bhakta. Late Indra Bhakta is Rabi Bhakta’s father.
