Construction of the 132 kV Arunkhola (Dumkibas) substation project has begun. Land acquisition for the project that lies at Binayi Tribeni Rural Municipality-2 in Nawalparasi East has been completed, said the project chief Ranjan Nath Gurung, adding that distributing compensation for the acquisition of four bigha of land for the project has been over.

Similarly, a contractor has been selected, and the process for a contract has begun, he said. The project completion target is two years with the assistance of USD 7 million from the Asian Development Bank. Following the construction of a double-circuit substation, the local people of Madyabindu Municipality and the rural municipality will be relieved of low-voltage problems. The 132kV transmission line has expanded from Bardaghat to the project site of the Hongshi cement industry.

Along with low-voltage problem resolution, a conducive investment climate will be created following the construction of the substation, said the rural municipality chair Ghana Shyam Giri, adding that a significant number of businesspersons showed interest to start their businesses and industries.

"Along with the country's biggest Hongshi cement industry, other enterprises and industries will avail it. Conducive investment climate will be created for aspiring businesspersons as well."
