The Central Development Region (Nepali: मध्यमाञ्चल विकास क्षेत्र, Madhyamānchal Bikās Kshetra) is one of Nepal's five development regions. It is located in the east-central part of the country with headquarters at Kathmandu, the country's capital.

It comprises three zones:

The Central Development Region(CDR) is located in Nepal and between the eastern and western development region. The central development region has the capital Nepal Kathmandu where people are provided so all people from all over Nepal come here for jobs and to stay. This is why this region is very populated.


It was formed in 1972 when the government of Nepal along with the regional planners divided Nepal into 4 development regions (the 1 was formed later in 1981).
