Chief Executive Officer of the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), Yubaraj Bhusal has said that the local levels will pass the sketch of the house of the earthquake victims without taking any fees.
He also asserted that construction materials like stones, gravel, sand and timber would be provided in an easy way to the quake survivors for constructing their houses.
The NRA Chief was speaking in an interaction programme the Authority organised here on Saturday. The stakeholder organisations and bodies in the district participated in the interaction.
Bhusal said that the task of constructing the houses of the earthquake-affected people has been moved forward under the leadership of the local level people’s representatives. He insisted that the NRA has deputed the engineers to the local level for the reconstruction of the houses of earthquake survivors.
The engineers assigned to the earthquake affected areas have been sent there after providing 10 days long training while the sub-overseers have been assigned after providing them two-day training. NRA chief also said that the local technicians would also be imparted training on construction of earthquake resilient shelters and structures. Likewise, the carpenters and masons will also be given a week-long training on this.
Chief District Officer of Palpa district, Bishnu Prasad Dhakal on the occasion suggested for improving the paper works and the process that the quake survivors have to fulfill for house construction, saying it was cumbersome and time-consuming.
Chiefs and the administrative officials of the local levels, representatives of political parties, technicians, office-bearers of the District Coordination Committee and journalists stressed on the need of constructing the houses of the earthquake victims as soon as possible and in an efficient manner.
