The Government of India handed over the building of the Madan Bhandari Memorial College in Kathmandu to the College Management Committee of Nepal, Kathmandu earlier this week. The building has been constructed with Indian financial assistance.

The handing over ceremony on Monday was presided over by Indian Ambassador to Nepal Naveen Srivastava, and was attended by a number of dignitaries, including Nepal's former Minister of Foreign Affairs Mahendra Bahadur Pandey, college management committee chair Usha Kiran Bhandari, the chair of the Madan Bhandari Foundation, and Santosh Budathoki, the chair of the district coordination committee in Kathmandu.

The project was approved as a High Impact Community Development Project under the 'Nepal-India Development Cooperation' program, costing a total of NRs. 28.64 million, the Indian Embassy in Nepal said.

The college has been providing top-notch education since it opened. It has more than 1500 students from various districts across the nation and is connected with Tribhuvan University. It also offers a wide range of courses.

According to information provided by the Indian Embassy in Nepal, since 2003, India has undertaken more than 535 High Impact Community Development Projects in Nepal, of which 478 have been completed. Of these, Bagmati Pradesh is home to 104 projects, 40 of which are in the Kathmandu District.

In addition to this, the Indian government has donated 68 ambulances and 46 school buses to hospitals, health clinics, and educational institutions in Kathmandu, one of which was provided to this college.

The execution of this project demonstrates the Government of India's ongoing assistance in supporting the Government of Nepal's initiatives to elevate its people via the development of educational facilities, the Indian Embassy said.
