36 district offices removed in Kathmandu


KATHMANDU, July 27: A total of 36 district offices in Kathmandu have been removed with the local level units coming into operation following the implementation of federalism.

According to Assistant Chief District Officer of Kathmandu Basudev Ghimire, the move was taken as the services being rendered by the offices will be delivered by the local level units.

The district level offices scrapped are related to education, public health, agriculture, forest and land among others while offices as the District Administration Office, District Court, District Treasury Office, Office of Land Revenue and Survey, District Attorney Office and District Election Office are kept intact, shared Ghimire.

Following the implementation of federalism in the country, the services rendered by the district-based offices would be delivered from local level units from July 17 according to the new Constitution.

The buildings where the removed offices were located would be managed within mid-October while the staffers of the offices too would be deployed at local level offices by the same time, said Ghimire.

There are currently 11 local level units in Kathmandu district.
