Welcome to Ministry of Defence


Government of Nepal is responsible for ensuring the defence of the country and every part thereof. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) undertakes this responsibility by formulating defence policies and coordinating the Nepalese defence affairs with other agencies of the government and the Nepal Army.

Historical Background:

The origin and evolution of the defence administration of modern Nepal dates back to the unification of Nepal in 1768 A D. From the foundation to until popular movement, the defence administration was directly overseen by the Crown itself.

Before the advent of democratic system of governance in 1950, there was no division of duties between the Ministry and the Army headquarters. The Commander-in Chief and the Senior Commanding General between themselves dealt with the whole range of administration and policy regarding defence. (Buch Commission Report 1952). For the first time in the history of Nepal, a separate ministry by the name of Defence Ministry was set up in the interim Government of 1950
