Over 200k houses rebuilt or under construction: NRA
Oct 17, 2017-More than 200,000 private homes have either been rebuilt or are under construction in 14 districts worst hit by the 2015 earthquakes, according to the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA).
In a statement released on Monday, the authority has said 58,656 houses have been completed and 142,863 are under construction. The recent enforcement of deadline for obtaining all three tranches of housing grant has expedited the reconstruction process, the authority said.
“We expect the number of completed and under construction homes to reach 350,000 by mid-January,” said Pravin Acharya, an NRA engineer. (PR)
