KATHMANDU: Nepal Army has been upgrading and equipping the Kavre-based Birendra Peace Operations Training Center (BPOTC) so as to meet the latest security challenges the security personnel face in their workplace.

Lately, the government of Nepal had made the commitment of increasing the number of peacekeepers and make it 10,000.

According to the BPOTC sources, the training center is being developed as per the ‘Center for Excellence’ approach.

“We have been working  more on equipping the center in all ways so that the center can be hailed as one of the best training centers,” Colonel Manoj Baidawar, the commandant at the Center said, adding, “As per the Army’s ‘Center for Excellence’ approach the foreign security forces will also be offered the pre-deployment training as required for the mission.”

Nepal Army also affirmed that for the expansion of the training center, NA has requested the Ministry of Defense to coordinate in land acquisition.

Since Nepal first sent Old Gorkha Battalion in 1974, at UN request 129,890 Nepali soldiers have worked in UN Peace Keeping Mission.
