Bardghat municipality initially decided to build a trauma center with 50 beds, but the decision of the Minister Parishad on the 22nd of Paush decided to build a trauma center with 25 beds and sent a letter to the Ministry of Finance to ensure funds. On 23rd Paush last year, the Ministry of Finance sent a letter to the Ministry of Health revising the program.

After that, on 25th Paush, the Ministry of Health sent a letter to the Ministry of Finance for the consent of resources for the construction of trauma center. After the Ministry of Finance gave consent for the multi-year contract and resource assurance on 17th January, the Ministry of Health sent a letter to the Department of Urban Development and Construction on 18th January for the construction of the trauma center building in Bardghat West Nawalparasi.

Mayor Shrestha said that since the source of 150 million rupees for the construction has been assured, the trauma center will be built after sending the letter for implementation.

“We requested 200 million rupees from the Ministry of Finance for trauma, but now the finance has ensured a budget of 150 million rupees,” said City Chief Shrestha.
