It reminded that Rule 154 (1) of Education Regulations, 2059 (with amendment) and Rule (70) of KMC School Education Management Regulation, 2074 have the provision that schools should be named, reflecting the Nepali identity.

The Department also directed such institutional schools under the KMC to contact the KMC Education Department within seven days, saying the names of most institutional schools are found against this provision.

The notice reads that legal processes could be forwarded as per the law like prohibiting the student admission process if a process to naming the school reflecting Nepali identity is not adopted contacting the Department within a week.
