On 27 September 2016, DFID Annual Review team, comprising of Mr. Gareth Weir and Ms June Shrestha from DFID and Mr. Navin Subedi-MEL visited DRCN Kirtikham–Lungra (69DR003). The Annual Review team travelled along the DRCN, up to Lungaraligad (a local river crossing) at ch 2+960. The Review team met RMG across Lungraligad, where all members of RMG welcomed the team with ‘garlands and tika’. Thereafter, discussion took place at site and the Review Team raised a series of queries and concerns about need and importance of road maintenance. Major queries broadly covered the issues, like, how RMG members were selected, what is the role of RMG, what are the provisions of safety and insurance coverage, RMG’s contract issues and work days, RMG payment procedures, wages distribution and audit, and, in particular, direct benefits to RMG’s families in their livelihoods. The team also checked field records and documents relating to RMG’s work plans, daily attendance, insurance coverage, wages distributions, safety materials and equipment, first-aid kit and construction tools.
