ROLPA— A factory established in Sulichaur, the eastern belt in Rolpa district, has started the production of hair oil through processing of medicinal herbs available in the locality.

Established with the investment of Rs 15 million, a total of 35 people have been employed, proprietor of the industry Tek Bahadur Ghartimagar said.
