The process to supply fertilisers will begin once Bangladesh approves the LC and nods. There has been a delay from the side of Bangladesh,” he said.

As per the agreement, the supply should begin within 10 days of the issuance of LC and complete within two months.
The government of Nepal is importing 50,000 metric tonnes of fertilisers from Bangladesh.

The supply cost is USD 259.195 per metric ton, which is an around USD 18 cheaper per metric ton as compared to the existing supply rate.
