KATHMANDU, August 11: Newly-appointed managing director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), Kulman Ghising has assumed office on Wednesday afternoon.
On the proposal of the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, the Council of Ministers on Monday appointed Ghising as the managing director of the NEA.
Ghising has been reappointed to the post for the next four years. Ghising has already served NEA successfully, earning huge support from the general public as well.
Ghising was appointed the managing director of NEA for the first time on September 16, 2016. In his first four-year term, he was not only successful in ending the chronic problem of power outage, commonly known as ‘load-shedding’, in the country but also turned the NEA into a profit-making institution, ending the years of loss-making trend.
