Bangladesh and Nepal are discussing two potential options for dedicated cross-border transmission lines, subject to the approval of India, to facilitate power trade between the two countries. Nepal and Bangladesh have identified two routes for the dedicated transmission line via India, which will be deliberated during joint-secretary-level joint working group and secretary-level joint steering committee meetings. The two countries have also requested India’s permission to utilize its existing transmission line infrastructure for supplying 40-50MW of Nepal’s power to Bangladesh. No concrete decisions have been made yet regarding the implementation of the dedicated transmission lines. Nepal is also considering enhancing the capacity of existing transmission infrastructure to facilitate increased power trade between Nepal and Bangladesh through India.
