The State Management and Good Governance Committee of the House of Representatives has already discussed and endorsed the Citizenship Bill which was presented in 2018.

The bill has been tabled in the House of Representatives now.

Leaders in the government have differing views on whether to grant citizenship to a foreign woman who marries a Nepali man immediately or after 7 years.
