The setting of local dispute resolution in rural Nepal takes in the traditional process of Village Development Committee. Unfortunately, Village Development Committee, the ancient local bench of Nepal does not inherit an effective criminal court to administer trial and punishment on individuals autonomously and resulting in mounting local disputes. It is also apparent that, success of local conflict management through permissible approach does not transpire itself as a vibrant body to ensure fair play across the level; rather it has been paralyzed due to undue influence of the vested quarters in the rural Nepal.
