It is recognized as one of the chief causes of Nepal’s underdevelopment. It is very widespread, has different manifestations, and is practiced at all levels of society. The Nepali bureaucracy, politician, and the business sector are most seriously affected by, and inextricably involved in corruption. This is really a great challenge to the campaign of modern Nepal.

First, I will outline the different forms of corruption prevailing in Nepal. Secondly, I will propose some issues to fight against corruption, a broader agenda of democratization.
