The academy will come up near Dali, 4km from Darjeeling town, at an estimated cost of Rs23 crore. Work on the project is slated to be completed in two years’ time.
“The Nepali Academy will be set up as per the GTA agreement. The Centre has allocated the required funds. It will take two years to complete the infrastructure,” informed GTA sabhasad Binay Tamang, the in-charge of the council’s information and cultural affairs department.
Tamang said, “Our focus is to preserve the rich culture and history of the Nepali language and also promote it not only in the country but across the world. We believe this initiative will also help the youths to learn about their place of birth and its importance.”
“There are several projects lined up to develop the hills and the Nepali Academy and Cultural Research Centre is one of them. We want to make the hills a better place for the benefit of the people and will continue to work for their welfare,” said Tamang.
