The government is distributing electric stoves for free to students. The move is expected to help cut down fuel costs and burden on students and save dollar reserves for the federal bank.
The government had announced giving away free electric stoves in the budget speech FY 079/80. For now, these are given away to the students living in Kathmandu for higher-level education. That means this initiative is only available for students living in the capital in rented rooms or flats.
Meanwhile, to implement this plan, the Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) has called on students studying for bachelor’s and master’s to apply to get an electric cooktop. The center is particularly encouraging students from “Dalits and indigenous” groups to apply. Under this plan, one applicant can receive one free electric stove from the government for free.
Remember that ht last date for application submission is June 23.

Having an electric stove would certainly help minimize dependency on LP Gas and help save some cash spent otherwise on fuels. Besides, having an alternative for cooking will also save time for many students as they can cook on both a gas stove and an electric one.
Meanwhile, the government has also announced that it will distribute induction cooktops to over 6 million as it wants to encourage the use of electricity for cooking. Giving away to students for free is, we hope the right step toward that ambitious goal.
