The national body to oversee reconstruction activities in the wake of 2015 earthquake, National Reconstruction Authority has released Rs 11 billion to provide to quake survivors for individual house construction.
The Authority released the amount to the Central Project Implementation Unit under the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development.
The Authority says it released the budget in advance as the progress achieved in the reconstruction is significant, hence the survivors might demand more grant.
The Authority has requested the Ministry of Finance to release Rs 5 billion more.
As of Tuesday, total 291,815 houses are under construction and 227,854 persons are due to receive the second tranche of reconstruction grant.
