Kathmandu: India has pledged to provide financial assistance for the construction of building for Shree Mahendra Ratna Multiple Campus in Ilam in eastern Nepal.

The grant assistance to the tune of Rs 22.63 million will be utilised to construct three storeyed campus building and provision of furniture for the campus under India-Nepal Economic Cooperation Programme, according to a release issued by Indian Embassy.

The college established in 1960 is affiliated to Tribhuvan University and is currently running Bachelor level courses in the Faculty of Humanities with arts, political science, economics and Nepali as major subjects.

Subsequently, the college was upgraded to multiple campus where over 3500 students study.

The current infrastructure of the Campus is old and inadequate to cope with the existing requirements of the Campus.

The new triple storied campus building with provision for furniture being undertaken with the assistance of Government of India would enable developing the campus into a high-quality institution offering affordable education to the growing number of student.
