319,912 households ‘real beneficiaries’
Rebuilding authority to start signing aid agreements from tomorrow

Apr 23, 2016-The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) is preparing to sign aid agreements with over 50 percent of the total quake-affected households
that were identified by the Post Disaster Need Assessment conducted last year after the April 25 earthquake.
(http: / / www. nicasiabank. com /)
The reconstruction body has finalised the name list of “real beneficiaries” after re-verifying details of damage caused to houses and infrastructure.
“After going through the details collected so far, we have finalised 319,912 households as the beneficiaries from 11 districts that were worst affected by the
quake,” said NRA Spokesperson Ram Thapaliya.
He said that the authority will begin signing aid agreements in 11 districts from Sunday when the country marks the first anniversary of the earthquake. Prime
Minister KP Sharma Oli is set to lay the foundation stone of two private houses in Sindhupalchok and Okhaldhunga on the day.
Authority officials said the final name list of beneficiaries will be made public in villages of 11 districts where detailed damaged assessments have been
completed.
Based on agreements made with the World Bank and other donors in August, the Central Bureau of Statistics had begun survey of damaged houses and
infrastructure from January. So far, the CBS has surveyed over 643,000 houses in 11 districts. Survey is yet to begin in Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur.
The number of earthquake victims was estimated to be half a million when details were collected while preparing the PDNA. The number, however, increased
to 770,000 when the government announced various relief packages and subsidised loans for quake victims.
Thapaliya said earthquake victims will get the housing aid money after signing the grant agreements with the local bodies in the presence of NRA officials. The
government has announced Rs 200,000 as housing aid and up to Rs 2,500,000 in subsidised loan to each household rendered homeless.

CHANGING NUMBERS
â–  The NRA has finalised
319,912 households as
the real beneficiaries from
11 districts
The aid distribution process, however, is cumbersome, and will be completed in three phases. The victims will get
Rs 50,000 in the first phase, Rs 80,000 in the second and Rs 70,000 in the last phase, according to NRA’s grant
procedure guidelines.
The money will be released through banking channel. “We are holding discussions with the association of private
banks to distribute money,” said Thapaliya.
â–  The number is half of the
households identified as
quake-affected by the
Post Disaster Needs
Assessment (PDNA)
â–  PDNA had identified half a
million households as affect-
ed in the immediate after-
math of the April 25 quake
â–  The number later increased
to 770,000 when the govern-
ment announced various
relief packages and
subsidised loans
But according to sources, the NRA and banks are yet to reach an agreement for the purpose. It is learnt that
banks have sought Rs 1,050 for releasing money to each household. The NRA is at sea as to how it is going to
manage such a huge sum of money which it will require if it has to pay Rs 1,050 for distributing money to each
household.
