Ambassador of India to Nepal Manjeev Singh Puri on Saturday inaugurated one of the school buildings in Jogidaha, Udayapur and laid the foundation stone for the construction of campus building for Narad Aadarsha Education in Basaha.

India has extended a total of NPR 66.44 million as financial assistance for construction of these buildings under its Small Development Programme Scheme, according to a press release issued by the Indian embassy in Kathmandu.

The newly constructed building of Shree Janata Higher Secondary School consists of 12 classrooms along with toilets, a compound wall and furniture.

The Ambassador also announced Mahatma Gandhi scholarship for two meritorious students of the school.

Narad Aadarsha Education Campus, affiliated to Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, currently provides education for more than 175 students and 7 percent of them are girls.

The new infrastructure would provide much-needed classroom space and would create an improved environment for learning and contribute to the development of the education facilities in Udayapur district.
