India to build 50,000 houses for quake victims in Nepal


To assist earthquake-ravaged Nepal in its reconstruction effort, India today pledged to build 50,000 houses in its two worst-hit districts.  

India signed an agreement with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) to build homes for quake victims in Gorkha, the epicentre of 2015 earthquake, and the Nuwakot district.   

According to Indian Embassy sources, under the project, 26,912 home owners will be benefited in Gorkha and 23,088 homeowners in Nuwakot.

Socio-technical teams from UNDP and UNOPS will assist home owners to reconstruct their houses as per the Government of Nepal's earthquake-resistant norms. 

They will also guide them through the inspection and certification process at different stages of construction so as to enable them to have access to various tranches of housing grant.

Under the agreement, India will give 8.41 million US dollars to the UNOPS and 7.41 Million US dollar to the UNDP for the reconstruction of the homes.
