The Prime Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund is purely a relief fund set up by the Government of Nepal. The fund is used for rescue, treatment, relief, rehabilitation of victims and restoration of physical infrastructure damaged by natural disaster and calamities. Money received from the Government of Nepal or from any other national and international sources for the purpose of relief is deposited into this Fund and is solely used for the purpose of providing relief to the affected people.
The fund cannot be spent on any other overheads including facilities and allowances to civil servants or used to provide donations. At the Central Relief Fund level, a committee headed by the Vice Chairperson of the National Planning Commission and comprising of Secretaries of eight different ministries coordinate the Fund activities. The funds are released to the office of the Chief District Officer, who is the Coordinator of the District Relief Fund, through the Ministry of Home Affairs only after a unanimous decision is made by this committee.
All expenditure under both the Central Relief Fund and the District Relief Fund, are regularly and annually audited by the Auditor General of Nepal, which ensures maximum accountability and transparency.
