Both sides agreed upon establishing a quarentine service centre for facilitating access of Nepali agricultural and industral products to the Indian market.

Settling the deal in relation to the use of railway service and bulk cargo that come into Nepal from third countries for making the transit facility that the country is enjoying more effective was also agreed during the State visit.

The PM further said India's political leadership and private sector were requested to invest in Nepal, said an official, who was part of the delegation.
Along with it, an agreement in principle was forged to construct a technical institute in Far West and GP Koirala Respiratory Disease Control Centre in Tanahun with the Indian grants.

Similarly, agreement has been forged to forward the process for the construction of 132 KV transmission line, Butwal Gorakhpur and Lamki Transmission Line. PM Deuba shared that he had urged Indian Prime Minister Modi to sort out the problems faced by Nepali number bearing LPG bullets in India.
"We- I and Indian PM- jointly inaugurated the transmission line of Kataiya-Kushaha and Raxhaul-Parbanipur, ensuring 100 MW electricity immediately to Nepal," the PM said, adding that various eight agreements were made during the visit.
It was also agreed during the visit to make the SAARC and BIMSTEC further effective so as to promote regional cooperation.
PM Deuba asserted that various high level meetings held in course of his State visit to India helped enhance trust between the two countries in addition to creating atmosphere of assistance for the development of energy, promotion of trade, tourism and connectivity.
