Pancheshwar Development Authority (PDA), the developer of 4,800-megawatt Nepal-India Pancheshwar Multipurpose Project, has called on governments of both countries to expedite the process of providing feedback on final draft of the detailed project report submitted earlier by a consultant. Although the PDA has not officially issued a deadline in this regard, its CEO Mahendra Gurung said the PDA was working towards finalising the DPR by end of October. WAPCOS Ltd, an Indian state-owned company hired to prepare the detailed report on Pancheshwar project, submitted the final draft of the DPR in March. Since then, copies of the draft DPR have been forwarded to both Nepali and Indian governments, seeking suggestions. But delay in submission of recommendations has prevented PDA executive body, led by Gurung, from moving forward.
