KATHMANDU, Feb 1: The government is yet to claim reimbursements worth Rs 34 billion from different development partners.
According to Financial Comptroller General’s Office, many projects, which have already been closed, also have claims for reimbursements.
Some 16 ministries have failed to claim reimbursements even
though projects under them have already been closed,” Financial Comptroller General Rajendra Prasad Nepal said, adding that it has added additional financial
burden on the government.
“The ministries have to show more urgency to get reimbursements in time,” he added.
