Kathmandu, January 22
India says it is positive about removing existing hurdles that have barred liquefied petroleum gas bullets owned by Nepali traders from going to India to fetch fuel here. Though the Nepali traders have been putting pressure on the authorities to take initiatives in this regard, little progress has been made so far.
Dhruva Ghimire, a joint secretary at the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies, says the Indian side has told the Nepali Embassy in New Delhi to go ahead with the obstructed process and resolve the issue. The Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has said Nepal to coordinate with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade.
During a meeting of the Nepal-India Petroleum Joint Working Ground held in New Delhi last week, the Nepali delegation had raised concerns over the issue.
Ghimire assures that the embassy would move ahead in coordination with the traders, hoping the issue would be resolved in the next two months.
