The District Coordination Committee (DCC), is a district-level authority found in Nepal. It was formed on March 14, 2017 to replace the existing district development committee.[1][2] There are 77 district coordination committees in Nepal.[3]

The Head of a district development committee is elected by the district assembly. The government also appoints a Local Development Officer in each district development committee who heads the DCC in absence of an elected head or deputy head.[4]

Formation[edit]

The district coordination committee is elected by the District Assembly, which consists of the Heads and Deputy Heads of all the rural municipalities and Mayors and Deputy Mayors of all the municipalities in the district. Nine members are elected for a term of five years by the District Assembly including, one Head, one Deputy Head, at least three women and at least one person from the Dalit or minority community. Only members of the village assembly or municipal assembly in the district are eligible to candidates.[5]

Powers, Duties and functions[edit]

The DCC acts as an executive to the District Assembly. The DCC coordinates with the Provincial Assembly to establish coordination between the Provincial Assembly and rural municipalities and municipalities and to settle disputes, if any, of political nature. It also maintains coordination between the provincial and Federal government and the local bodies in the district.[5]
