According to Minister for Land Reforms and Management Shashi Shrestha, the government has not stopped the pledge of land.

 Minister Shrestha informed the National Assembly today that the arrangement has been made to take loans only after the allotment of land at the local level.

At present, only some of the land is agricultural or non-agricultural. Its main objective is to conserve arable land and improve food security. It is not only the current regulations that have made this arrangement. As the land use act has already given this right to the local level, it is not possible for the government to classify the land. Instead, the government can provide the necessary technical assistance to the local level in this regard.

She informed that the Ministry of Land Reforms and Management has requested all the local levels through the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration to implement this issue. She informed the House that the Government of Nepal has prepared land use maps and statistics of all the 753 local governments and handed them over to the local levels.
