May 1, 2018 By INSEC

Nepal has marked three years anniversary of devastating earthquake in 2015 April 25 but the quake victims are still living under the tent and huts. The data says that not even one third of the houses of the victims have been reconstructed.

Acting chief Bed Prasad Gaudel of National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) of Nuwakot said that majority of quake victims are still living under the tent and huts.

According to District Project Implementation unit, in Nuwakot, 15,000 houses have been reconstructed however; the number is very less as compared to the intensity of damaged houses.

The District Project Implementation unit chief Bidur Khadka said that recommendation for the second installment of grant amount for the victims have been made and they are building houses according to data.

Lack of construction materials is the major reason behind the delay in reconstruction according to ward chairman Ram Hari Pandey of Belkotgadhi Municipality-11.
