Chobhar Dary port construction Letest update, chobhar kirtipur Kathmandu

As Nepal is geographically a landlocked country bordering India on three sides and China on one side, the dry port plays an important role in keeping the economic and commercial sector of the country afloat. The Chobhar port in Kathmandu has been brought into operation not close to the border but close to the capital. It is under the Ministry of Dry Ports, Commerce and Supplies and will be operated by the Intermotor Development Committee.

Necessary for the operation of the port, security, declaration of quarantine area, creation of staff posts and formulation of operating procedures, work is being done. As it is a new government office, it is said that it will take more time to operate it. Nepal seems to be a country rich in natural resources, even though it is not able to use them, it is still suffering a lot of economic hardships. In the absence of a party, Nepal has to maintain economic and business dealings by cooperating with other countries.

Experts say that even if the work of this Port is continued, it may take 5-6 months for it to come into operation. The possibility of a dry port in the border area of ​​Nepal, despite the possibility of uniform checks and customs clearance, is still confusing. Considered suitable for economic benefits, consumers will also benefit directly and indirectly from the port, he said.

The Government of Nepal has taken a loan of Rs. 1.70 billion from the World Bank for the construction of Chobhar Kritipur Dry Port. The construction company was selected. The inaguration of the dry port was planned by the then Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on 2075-10-03. Other tasks are also required.

The construction work of the customs building, stop room and other buildings has also reached the final stage. Two gates will be constructed for this purpose, while one gate will be constructed in the central part for the exit. For Nepal’s economic and business growth, it needs to move forward in collaboration with foreign countries, for which Nepal needs a dry port.
