The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has undertaken a significant reshuffle involving the transfer of 25 Joint Secretaries and 16 Chief District Officers (CDOs), alongside the appointment of 9 new Joint Secretaries. This move is part of a comprehensive organizational strategy aimed at enhancing administrative efficiency and governance.

Among the notable transfers, Bharat Mani Pandey, previously serving as a Joint Secretary at the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority, has been appointed as the Chief District Officer (CDO) of Kaski. In a corresponding shift, Basudev Ghimire, the current CDO of Kaski, will now assume duties at the Home Ministry.

Further notable transfers include Ram Chandra Tiwari from the Home Ministry to the role of CDO of Sunsari, Tirtha Raj Silwal as CDO of Makwanpur, and Bishnu Prasad Koirala as CDO of Panchthar. Rajendradev Pandey has been reassigned as CDO of Dhading, Surya Prasad Sedhai from Makwanpur to Kavrepalanchowk, and Rudradevi Sharma from Kavre to Bardia.

Additionally, the reshuffle impacts several other districts: Jai Narayan Acharya, formerly the CDO of Sunsari, is now at the Department of Prison Management, Indradev Yadav of Ilam has been moved to Chitwan, Bhupendra Thapa of Chitwan to Sindhupalchok, and Mekh Bahadur Magrati of Panchthar to Saptari.

This large-scale transfer is indicative of MoHA’s ongoing efforts to optimize the deployment of its senior officials across various administrative regions, aiming to bolster local governance and improve public administration throughout Nepal.
