India gives $2.49 million for Hulak Rajmarga project

The Government of India has provided $2.49 million to Nepal for Hulaki Rajmarga – which is popularly known as postal highway – project.
The under-construction highway that runs across the Tarai region close to the Nepal-India border is in news in recent months due to delay in construction.
Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae handed over a cheque for Rs 249.71 million – that is equivalent to $2.49 million – to the minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Ramesh Lekhak at the latter's office today, according to a press release issued by the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu.
The highway, which was used to carry mails since the Rana regime, runs from Bhadrapur in the east to Dodhara in the west.
