Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart K P Sharma Oli jointly inaugurated the second integrated check post at Jogbani-Biratnagar along the border on Tuesday.

Built with Indian assistance, the integrated check post is spread over 260 acres and is capable of handling 500 trucks on a daily basis. The Rs 140 crore project will improve trade and people-to-people contact. The first integrated check post was built in Raxaul-Birgunj in 2018.

The project was launched jointly by the two leaders via a video link.

At the event, both prime ministers also reviewed the progress in Indian-assisted post-2015 earthquake housing reconstruction projects in Nepal. Out of India’s commitment to build 50,000 houses in Gorkha and Nuwakot districts, 45,000 have already been completed.
