Schools will remain shut in Nepal on Sunday, which is otherwise a working day there, to enable students to welcome the Indian prime minister. Nepalese Prime Minister Koirala will be present at the airport to receive his Indian counterpart.

Prime Minister Modi will also address the Nepalese parliament, the first foreign leader to do so. He also addressed the Bhutanese parliament during a visit to that country in June.
