RMGs have been remobilized in Jumla for a month starting from 17th September 2018. The funding of this work is by direct funding by RAP3 as part of its exit strategy from the Core maintenance districts. The strategy is first to complete the training of Municipal technical staff (Technical Focus Persons) ahead of the arrival of GON funding earmarked for RMG works by the Ministry of Finance. Secondly, field inspections had shown that the condition of DRCNs had deteriorated due to the monsoon rains and maintenance was indispensable to improve access ahead of the forthcoming festival season. Thirdly this move means that RMGs will have cash in their pockets for Dasain and Tihar.
