The question of land and agrarian reform has become the most pertinent post-conflict agenda at this historical juncture while the country is undergoing a restructuring process. State restructuring is about the restructuring of the economic and political power. In Nepal, the land ownership pattern still determines the economic prosperity, social status and the political power of any individual or family. Therefore, the question of land and agrarian reform has been so critical issue at this point of time.

Conventionally, discourses on land reform used to be confined as a mere program to redistribution of the land. This study argues that the questions of land reform should go hand in hand with the question of agrarian reform. Therefore, this study focuses on land and agrarian reform as an inseparable process, to be dealt with an integrated approach. .
