Motipur substation constructed by Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) in Banaganga Municipality-7 of Kapilvastu has come into operation. The East-West 132 KV transmission line has been constructed at 8 towers and taken to Motipur substation.

According to NEA, the 30 and 16 MVA power transformers in the substation have been charged and brought into operation for local power supply. Of these, three feeders have been brought into operation and the remaining one has been kept in reserve. The 33 kV and 11 kV feeder lines have been brought into operation from Motipur substation to supply electricity to Jitpur of Kapilvastu, Toulihawa and Saljandi areas of Rupandehi respectively.

Earlier, electricity was being supplied to the area from Kapilvastu's Chanauta. When power was supplied from a long line, there were some problems. Now that the Motipur substation is operational, the power supply in the area will be reliable and of high quality and technical leakage will also be reduced. A 33/11 KV substation is under construction in Saljandi and once the construction is completed, the power supply of the area will be more quality and reliable.

Construction of 106 towers on the Motipur-Sandhikharka transmission line under the project has been completed. Out of the 38 km transmission line in this section, 13 km wire has been laid. Work is underway to complete the construction of the transmission line within the next 15 days and bring it into operation.

The project has been constructed to improve the power supply of Kapilvastu, Arghakhanchi, Gulmi, Palpa and Baglung districts.
