RASUWA, Feb 19: Pemba Tamang's house was badly hit by the devastating earthquake of 2015 and the powerful aftershocks. Just like any other quake victim, he was sure that he would get government support to rebuild his house. However, his dream to shift to a safe house has not been fulfilled yet. With his family, he is living in the same quake-damaged house that can collapse anytime.

KATHMANDU, June 17: The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) has extended the deadline for resurvey of the earthquake victims by two weeks stating that it needs to complete the inspection of the quake-damaged homes to include the victims as beneficiaries of the private housing reconstruction and retrofitting grants.
