TAPLEJUNG: An on-site monitoring of the areas affected by the 50 MW United Mewakhola Hydropower Project under-construction in the Mewa River in Taplejung, has been conducted.

The compensation determination committee formed under the coordination of Meringden rural municipality deputy Chair Durga Prasad Chongwang has collected the details of the damage caused by the project.

The committee was formed after many local residents, who had already received compensation as per the standards set by project, started demanding more compensation saying that their land had been damaged by the project.

Coordinator of the committee, Durga Prasad Chongwang, said that a discussion was held with the people’s representatives and local residents about addressing the victims’ demand by looking at the survey map of the land washed away by the river towards Mikwakhola Rural Municipality.

Chair of Meringden Rural Municipality Dumbar Hangam, Assistant Chief District Officer Tanka Bhattarai, representative of survey office, ward chair of the affected area and others were part of the monitoring team.
