The agreement has been inked with 81 local levels in all seven provinces to enforce the program, shared Rama Bhattarai, Director of the Board.
A total of 21 local levels in Bagmati Province, 16 in Madhesh Province, 13 in Koshi Province, 14 in Gandaki Province, and altogether 18 in Lumbini Province and Sudurpaschim Province have signed agreements with the Board for the project.

Of the proposals submitted by the local level along with the programs according to their needs and desires, the Board said that agreement was made that the local levels expressing interest to implement this program would do so by adding 50 percent of the amount allocated by the Board.
