When citizens receive public services, government rules, policies and structures (at institutional level) and attitude, behavior, style of work etc. (at officer’s individual level) are involved. Citizens may regularly express their dissatisfaction at the individual or level or through the media. The dissatisfaction towards the government services have been heard and talked about a lot in our society. The services have been failing to meet the expectation and need of people as it has not paid much attention to evaluating the effectiveness of such services. And the question arises, whether these services have been successful in satisfying people through its quality, fairness, and delivery mechanism and in situation of poor delivery, whether GoN holds itself responsible, accountable, and transparent in its service affairs or not.
Thus, a need to improve the service delivery mechanism of Nepal’s public institutions and a need to make it free from the traditional climate of slow performance and secret dealing is a basic necessity for good governance. For which, transparency and accountability is must. Once the institutions are made responsive and accountable, the delivery of public service can better match the need and expectation of people.

This political instability has affected various sectors such as health, education, industry which has accounted to losses in the country’s economy.
The next factor is the legal factor which is the predominant issue for any developing country like Nepal. In Nepal the laws, policies, act and rules have been practiced for many years without it being reformed and updated. Some acts and laws need to be reformed violently while and some needs to be implemented seriously and sincerely rather than just storing it in words. Looking the scenario of Nepal "law doesn't lie above all", as we can see many human rights being violated and political security to the law breakers is most often seen. But there has been minimal steps undertaken from the government to actually change these type of absurd activities and scenarios.
Economically, Nepal has been in not-so-good situation. This can be seen by ineffective budget planning where the expected expenditure and real expenditure always vary by big margin. The problem of budget and proper utilization of fund has been...
