KATHMANDU: Nepal Army (NA) is set to reform its organizational structure by converting its divisions into commands.

The organizational structure of the NA is being reformed to fit the geographical structure of the country as the current structure is administrative in nature, said NA Spokesperson Santosh Ballav.

According to Ballav, the NA structure will be converted into for commands by scrapping the current eight divisions.

The responsibilities which the headquarters was carrying out previously will be handed over to the commands, limiting the headquarters to the task of strategic planning.

As per the new structure, there will be Eastern Command, Central Command, Western Command and Valley Command. Earlier, there was an NA division in each province and one in the Kathmandu Valley.

The proposed commands will be equipped with an airbase, logistics base and a hospital.

The area of the command has been delineated based on the rivers.

Each command is led by a major general while a brigadier general will lead the brigades.  The battalions and companies will remain in districts as they are now.
