Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart KP Sharma Oli will on Tuesday jointly inaugurate the second integrated check post (ICP) at Jogbani-Biratnagar. 

The second Integrated Check Post at Jogbani-Biratnagar is built with Indian assistance to facilitate trade and people’s movement across India-Nepal border, the statement said.

Both Prime Ministers will also witness the remarkable progress in Government of India assisted post-earthquake housing reconstruction projects in Nepal.

Out of Government of India’s commitment to build 50,000 houses in Gorkha and Nuwakot districts, 45,000 have already been completed, it said.

This is the second integrated check post on the Nepal border. The first ICP was built at the Raxaul-Birgunj border in 2018.
