Prior to Tuesday's admission, the President also had check-ups on Saturday. Paudel was taken to New Delhi on a Shree Airlines flight on April 19 for treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). He returned back on April 30.

The President of Nepal also received treatment at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) in Kathmandu over four days before being airlifted to Delhi.

Paudel, who was admitted on April 5 of this year, was discharged after four nights. The Nepal head of state had undergone a follow-up and was admitted to the hospital after falling short of breath and fainting.

During the follow-up, doctors found an infection in his lungs and had been using medicines that are said to have failed to make a significant improvement in his health.

On March 13, senior Nepali Congress leader Ram Chandra Paudel was sworn in as the Nepalese President.
