High intensity monoenergetic muon neutrinos of energy 236 MeV from the kaon decay at rest at the medium energy proton accelerator facilities like J-PARC and Fermilab are proposed to be used for making precision measurements of neutrino-nucleus cross sections in 12C and 40Ar and perform neutrino oscillation experiments in νμ → νμ and νμ → νe modes. In view of these developments, we study the theoretical uncertainties arising due to the nuclear medium effects in the neutrino-nucleus cross sections as well as in the angular and energy distributions of the charged leptons produced in the charged current induced reactions by νμ and νe in 12C and 40Ar in the energy region of Eνe(νμ) > 300 MeV. The calculations have been done in a microscopic model using the local density approximation which takes into account the nuclear effects due to the Fermi motion, binding energy and long range correlations. The results are compared with the other calculations available in the literature.
