KATHMANDU- The government has decided to take ownership of the Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium in Chitwan and complete the stadium.
A meeting of the cabinet held on Monday made the decision to this effect.
The construction work of the Bharatpur-based stadium was halted in March 2022 after Dhurmus-Suntali Foundation withdrew from the construction of the stadium after not being able to pay the amount of materials purchased on loan.
Although the Foundation handed over the ownership of the stadium to the Bharatpur Metropolis, it was not clear how to proceed with the rest of its construction work.
For the stadium, the Bagmati State government announced that it would contribute Rs 300 million, Bharatpur Metropolitan City Rs 160 million, and the District Coordination Committee Rs 22 million.
