The roots of telecommunication services in Nepal can be traced back to B.S. 1973, with the formal establishment of telecom service occurring mainly after the inception of MOHAN AKASHWANI in B.S. 2005. Subsequently, in line with the First National Five-Year Plan (2012-2017), the Telecommunication Department was established in B.S. 2016, aiming to modernize and expand telecommunication services. During the third five-year plan (2023-2028), the Telecommunication Department underwent transformation, evolving into the Telecommunications Development Board in B.S. 2026.
With the enactment of the Communications Corporation Act 2028, the Nepal Telecommunications Corporation was formally established as a fully owned Government Corporation in B.S. 2032, dedicated to providing telecommunications services. For 29 years, the Nepal Telecommunications Corporation served the nation with immense pride and a sense of accomplishment.
A pivotal moment came with the transformation of the Nepal Telecommunications Corporation into Nepal Doorsanchar Company Limited (NDCL) on Baisakh 1, 2061. Registered under the Company Act 2053, the company operates under the well-known brand name "Nepal Telecom," recognized by the general public as its registered trademark.
Embracing a transition from a government-owned monopoly to a business-oriented, customer-focused entity within a competitive landscape, Nepal Telecom seeks the collaboration of all shareholders in the noble task of nation-building. As the telecommunications industry evolves, Nepal Telecom remains committed to advancing its services, ushering in a new era of communication technology for the people of Nepal.
