Proposal to Declare Sub-metropolis

There are 79 local bodies including 54 Rural Municipalities and 25 Municipalities in Karnali province. While the rest of the six provinces in the country have sub-metropolis, Karnali is the only province without any sub-metropolis. The provincial capital Birendranagar is also limited to a municipality status.

In this context, a process has been forwarded through the budget statement to declare the Birendranagar Municipality as a Sub Metropolitan City from the next fiscal year. The Ninth Municipal Assembly of the municipality has brought a proposal to request the province government and the federal government to get Birendranagar Municipality declared into a Sub Metropolitan City.
