 Industrial Centers

Nepal has made good progress in recent years in the development and improvement of basic infrastructure facilities required for an accelerated program of economic and social development. Efforts are continuing to further improve various facilities required for the development of trade, industry and commerce to bring them in line with modern international standards. The urban centres of Kathmandu valley (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur), Pokhara and the industrial towns in the Terai region, Biratnagar, Janakpur, Bhairahawa, Rajbiraj, Birgunj, Butwal, Nepalgunj and Hetauda offer good facilities for the establishment of medium and large scale industries.


Zoning of Industrial Location

His Majesty's Government has specified four zones for the purpose of granting permission or registration of new industries in and out of the municipalities including Kathmandu valley. It is hoped that this zoning of industrial location will facilitate planned, systematic and healthy industrial development by reducing industrial pollution, and over utilization of infrastructure facilities. Likewise, this zoning will also facilitate the balanced economic development of the country through diversification of investment flows in the underdeveloped and less developed areas of the kingdom. These four zones of industrial location are as follows :

  • Zone 1 Municipal areas of Kathmandu valley.

  • Zone 2 Outside the municipal areas of Kathmandu valley.

  • Zone 3 Municipal areas of Biratnagar, Dharan, Pokhara, Birgunj, Janakpur, Siddarthanagar, Butwal and Nepalgunj.

  • Zone 4 Municipal areas other than those mentioned in zone3.

Each zone has been clearly specified as to what type of industries is allowed to establish and operate. This policy has been adopted to ease and facilitate new investors so that they are encouraged to start their undertakings without difficulties.


Industrial Districts

With a view to boost industrialization by setting up various physical infrastructures and facilities necessary for the establishment of industrial enterprises the Government has established 11 industrial districts in various regions of the country. These are in Balaju, Patan, Bhaktapur, Hetauda, Pokhara, Dharan, Butwal, Nepalgunj, Birendranagar, Rajbiraj and Dhankuta.
