Radio Nepal's Pokhara stn on 684 kHz running on generator as power supply cut off

A report published in "The Himalayan" says The Nepal Electricity Authority cut off power supply to 15 government offices in Pokhara after they failed to clear power bills within a 15-day deadline, among them was the western regional broadcasting centre of Radio Nepal, the state-owned broadcaster.
According to NEA (Pokhara), Radio Nepal’s broadcasting centre owes it Rs 63,00,000. Durganath Regmi, chief of Radio Nepal’s regional broadcasting centre, said, “The power cut-off has not affected transmission from the broadcasting centre. The only thing is that we will have to rely on generators, which will cost a lot more.”
