Beltar Basaha is a Municipality in Udayapur District in the Sagarmatha Zone of south-eastern Nepal. This Municipality was established merging two Village Development Committee i.e. Beltar, Nepal and Basaha since 18 May 2014.[1][2] At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 8903 people living in 1743 individual households but now estimated 40,000 people as in 2015 are resident of the newly declared municipality. Rai is the major ethnic community with huge population while Khas, Magars, Sunuwar, Newar, Madeshi are ethnic minorities living in the town.

The town is hugely rural and connected mostly with gravel roads. most of the houses are wooden with sparely modern houses made of bricks and cement. The center of town is crowded densely with unplanned buildings and weak infrastructures as well as pollution due to vehicles, scattered wastage and dusty gravel roads has created critical problem in the town. Low water supply is the major problem in the town that has depressed people and their lifestyle as every household waste their productive time in collecting water from different sources for hours.

The town is the third most populated municipality of Udayapur District after Gaighat and Katari. Agriculture and business is the major occupation while the service sector is blooming recently.
