KATHMANDU, June 18: The post-quake data collection inside the Kathmandu Valley will take at least a week.
The data collection scheduled to start on June 15 could not take place due to lack of budget, said Central Bureau of Statistics Director, Dhundi Raj Lamichane.
The government has collected data in 11 of the 14 worst hit districts. The collection of data in Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur is yet to take place as a result of which the quake-stricken in these three districts will be deprived of grant assistance for house construction before the onset of monsoon season.
The quake survivors, whose houses were completely razed down during the earthquake, will receive Rs 200,000 in installments after the data collection.
The data collection inside the Valley will complete in a month, according to the Department. RSS
