With 4 points demand, Mahaveer is again on the movement

Mahaveer Pun, the founder of Rashtriya Avaskar Kendra, has staged a sit-in at Maitighar with 4-point demands.


They sat on a dharna demanding that every year the federal and state governments allocate 1 percent of their development budget and keep it in the ‘Research, Innovation and Innovation Fund’ to provide solid support to the research, innovation and innovation of talented and creative Nepalis.

The participants in the sit-in called ‘Establish a research, development and innovation fund’, set aside 1 percent of the development budget every year for research and development, support talented children to carry out necessary research, development and innovation, enact laws to encourage start-ups and do not discourage new entrepreneurs. They are carrying placards.

The service lane from Maitighar to Baneshwar is being closed and the dharna program is being held.

Earlier, Pun posted a video on social media on Thursday and called for a protest from Maitighar Mandla and Babarmahal area to bring the Nepal government to its knees until the demand is met.

Scientist Pun said that the movement will continue until these demands are met. He said, we will sit on dharna until the government fulfills these 4 points

Pun has put forward 4 points of demand for the movement.

1. Every year, the federal and state governments should set aside 1 percent of their development budget and keep it in the ‘Research, Innovation and Invention Fund’ to provide solid support to talented and creative Nepalis who do research, innovation and invention. From that fund, all talented children of Nepal should be supported to carry out necessary research, innovation and invention. If the amount collected in the fund is not spent in the same year, provision should be made to spend it in the next year as well.

2. In order to easily provide the amount of that fund to talented and innovative Nepalis in time, the Parliament should create a ‘Research, Innovation and Innovation Promotion, Operation and Procurement Act’ separate from the Public Procurement Act of the Government of Nepal and policy rules should be made so that the research work can be put in a multi-year program as needed.

3.Nepalese who want to become entrepreneurs by producing things made by research, innovation and invention and have been successfully tested should be provided the necessary permits, licenses, subsidies and easy loans to start enterprises and should make policies and rules to provide solid support to market the indigenous products. In order to facilitate the work and make policy rules as per the need, a ‘new entrepreneur promotion committee’ should be formed and the committee should request the government to take necessary steps.

4. A ‘Department of Applied Research and Innovation’ should be opened under the Ministry of Science to encourage and promote practical research with high priority in private research centers, non-profit research centers and universities. The department should be entrusted with full authority to prevent the country’s talents from migrating abroad and how and in what form to bring the talents who have migrated abroad back home and prepare a solid environment to take advantage of them.

Earlier on Tuesday, Pun had submitted these demands to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachand’, Home Minister Narayankaji Shrestha, Finance Minister Prakasharan Mahat and Education Minister Ashok Rai.
