According to officials in Delhi and Kathmandu, the India-Nepal hydropower trade is poised to transform the area. They cite the potential for buying electricity from Nepal and distributing it to consumers in India, Bangladesh, and even Sri Lanka via an electric grid system. But according to Nepal Electricity Authority Managing Director Kul Man Ghising, the process is being delayed by India’s opposition to using Chinese contractors in the projects. He is pleading with New Delhi to change its mind about acquiring electricity from Nepal’s largest 456 MW Upper Tamakoshi Hydroelectric Project (UTKHEP).

Nepal’s government has now requested that New Delhi permit a bilateral transmission from the power plant to Bangladesh, which has been willing to buy power from the UTKHEP for its grid.
