Memoranda of Understanding were signed for construction of Bagmati Lower Secondary School and Upgradation of Nala Karuna Marg Dadamukh – Ghimire Goan Nagarkot road as part of India–Nepal Cooperation Program of the Government of India.

The Bagmati Lower Secondary School is being constructed by DDC Makwanpur   with the Government of India financial assistance of NRs 12.4 million for under privileged students belonging to multi-ethnic and multi religious community in the area.  The present   infrastructure of the school is dilapidated.  The new building would provide much needed classroom space and would create an improved environment for learning.
