The objective of this article is to evaluate the revenue mobilization efforts in Nepal and understand the contribution patterns of various revenue sources.

It examines key aspects of fiscal federalism, including revenue collection rights, revenue sharing, and intergovernmental fiscal transfers, as governed by the Intergovernmental Fiscal Arrangement Act.
