With the adoption of the federal governing system in Nepal, the National Natural Resources and Finance Commission has been established in the constitution of Nepal to ensure the equitable distribution of natural and financial resources available in the country in order to implement the allocation of state power between the three levels of government.
Effective mobilization of financial and natural resources is a prerequisite for the flow of services to the people, promoting cooperation, co-existence and coordination by the union, state and local governments. This Commission plays an important role in ensuring financial transfer and balanced and equitable distribution of natural resources between the three levels of governments within the jurisdiction provided by the constitution.
