Kathmandu: India has allowed Nepal to sell an additional 325 megawatts of electricity in the Indian market.
Holding a press meet on Wednesday, Minister for Energy Pampha Bhusal said that India allowed the export of electricity from Nepal. During a recent visit by Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to India, the southern neighbor had turned positive on the export of surplus electricity.
Currently, the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is permitted to sell 39 megawatts of electricity in India.
At present, Nepal is purchasing electricity from India. The excess electricity produced in Nepal during the rainy season will be sold in the Indian market.
