CHITWAN: The power supply to the Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium has been cut after it failed to pay electricity bills.

The construction works of the stadium have been stagnated for the past five months. Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Bharatpur Transmission Centre on Wednesday disrupted power supply to the stadium for not paying bills.

According to Engineer at Transmission Centre, Rajendra Poudel, the tariff dues have reached Rs 887,000.

The Dhurmus Suntali Foundation that spearheaded the cricket stadium construction works had walked away from its responsibility after facing a financial crisis.

The Foundation has urged Bharatpur Metropolis to take ownership of the stadium saying the Foundation has yet to clear off the dues over Rs 170 million.

The NEA has also cut off the power supply to Mount Everest Brewery as it has yet to pay electricity tariff dues over Rs 3.74 million. Along with this, the NEA has cut off the line of 12 small firms and organisations for no regular payment of tariff.
