For failing to kick start construction of a road that connects UNHCR’s office with Brikuti Chowk of Damak Municipality, some Rs 2.4 million has been frozen.

The UN Refugee Agency has decided to freeze the budget as the contractor failed to begin the construction, a local newspaper quoted the Damak Municipality officials as saying, Wednesday.

 “Of total budget, Rs 2.4 million has been taken back by the agency,” Municipality engineer Tirtha Shrestha told.

According to Shrestha, the UNHCR decided to take back the remaining budget by dispatching a letter to the Municipality. The Municipality had awarded the construction bid to one Samir Tamang to construct 250 m long road last year.
