The government has issued instructions to all concerned stakeholders to not build permanent structures in areas affected by Budhi Gandaki Hydropower Project.

The government drew the attention towards its decision to bar construction of any permanent structure in wake of a report that mid-hill highway is being built in the project's reservoir area.

The road construction is currently taking place along Jyamarung, Tripureshwor and Salyantar sections of Dhading. The areas fall under the Budhi Gandaki's reservoir area.

Energy Ministry's Engineer, Anup Dhungana, said the government has issued permit on May 6 for construction of temporary structures in the reservoir area but construction of permanent structures remain banned.
