Rastriya Panchayat was the official legislature (parliament) (parliament) during the Panchayat regime of Nepal that effectively functioned from 1960 to 1990.[1] Its head office was at the "Gallery Baithak" in Singha Durbar, Kathmandu. In the 1980s, it consisted of more than 120 members among which 105 members were directly elected by the people, while the king was to nominate 20 percent of its members, i.e. 19 members were nominated by the monarch.

The Rastriya Panchayat was dissolved by King Birendra after the People's Movement I in 1990[2] and replaced by a bicameral legislature with a fully elected House of Representatives (Nepali: Pratinidhi Sabha).
