Government set to recruit 100,000 temporary police for polls

KATHMANDU: Nepal Police is preparing to publish a recruitment notice for hiring 100,000 temporary policemen (Myadi police) to beef up security in the upcoming local level elections slated for May 13, 2022.
“The Ministry of Finance has given approval to the Nepal Police Headquarters to begin the recruitment process of exactly 100,000 temporary policemen,” Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) and Spokesperson for the Police Headquarters Bishnu Kumar KC, said.

“We will publish a vacancy for a 40-day temporary job this week. Once recruited, we will provide them one week basic policing training,” SSP KC said while talking to The Rising Nepal on Tuesday.
He said that the Headquarters had asked for recruiting 118,000 Myadi police for the security during the elections. “Providing insufficient number means we need to seek support from other security bodies from the Armed Police Force Nepal (APF) and Nepali Army while executing security strategy for the elections,” SSP KC said.

For the salary of temporary policemen, the Headquarters has been provided with a budget of Rs. 4.39 billion and additional Rs. 1.32 billion for the Headquarters alone to purchase needed communication sets, including police sticks, said SSP KC.

“The budget doesn’t include money to buy vehicles for the Nepal Police as there is a plan to purchase some vehicles through the government-to-government model directly by the federal government itself,” SSP KC said.
