My friend wrote:

Inspection of Indian Embassy and Bangladesh Embassy is already done. Rest of the inspection is expected soon!

I think the first sentence is ungrammatical, the is must be an are instead. Am I right?

To answer your main question, the verb is fine. If you took out the subordinate clause, you'd be left with "Inspection is already done."

However, I can understand your confusion, as it might also be reasonable to say "Inspections are already done."

The key here is whether there is one inspection which happens to cover two places, or two inspections. Either view is reasonable.

The second sentence could use an article, though: "The rest of the inspection is expected soon!"
