Bet­ter Con­nec­tions

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

The Bhutan gov­ern­ment is pro­vid­ing util­ity ve­hi­cles to gewogs (a group of vil­lages) on highly sub­si­dized rates. The op­er­a­tional and main­te­nance cost of these ve­hi­cles will be borne by the gov­ern­ment which is also of­fer­ing a he­li­copter-bus ser­vice to such gewogs and chi­wogs (ad­min­is­tra­tive di­vi­sions), which don’t have road con­nec­tiv­ity. The dis­con­nected ar­eas will be con­nected by the he­li­copter ser­vice on a fifty per cent dis­count. There are 6 gewogs in Bhutan that are not linked with the rest of the coun­try via roads.
