KATHMANDU:  The State Bank of India (SBI) will be investing a total of Rs. 80 billion in the Arun III hydropower project of Nepal, which has 900 megawatts (MW) electricity production capacities.

The SJVN, which has been awarded with the construction of the mega power project of Nepal, has made an informal agreement with the SBI to acquire the investment as loan and soon will make the formal agreement, sources informed ANI.

"The Director Committee Meeting of the bank is due to make the recommendation. They soon will decide over. As of now they have decided over the loan extend and the interest rate over it has been finalized," the source informed with anonymity.

"The 1.4 trillion rupees over the project will be expended for the construction of the structures and additional 11 billion rupees for the transmission lines," the source briefed.

With the completion of the project, Nepal will get 21.9 per cent of the total electricity produced in a year i.e., 197 MW electricity with 86 crore unit for free in a year.

Along with this, the Punjab National Bank will lend the loan for the construction of the 268 km long 400 KV transmission line via the Everest Bank which is the joint venture bank of the PNB.

"The Everest Bank Limited also will invest Rs. 3.60 billion in the Arun III," the source added. Along with the Everest Bank will be made with investment from the EBL and the investment of the PNB in the project also will stand at Rs. 8 billion.

The source also informed that the Rs. 4.06 billion for the project will be lent from the Nepali banks as Bridge loan without further details over the banks.

With the finalisation of the investment and preliminary frame work prepared the Investment Board of Nepal will soon issue the license for the project.

"The Nepal Investment Board will soon issue the license for the construction of the project. It will not take more than a month meaning the license will be granted by mid-June as of now," another source in the Nepal Investment Board told ANI.

The Indian Government on the other hand has made the approval of Rs. 92 billion that is to be invested by SJVN. With this the SJVN will invest 25 billion of its own for the mega-project and will take the charge for 25 years excluding the time for the construction of infra.
