Drabesha is a village development committee in Morang District in the Koshi Zone of south-eastern Nepal. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 14,565 people living in 2709 individual households.[1]

It is supposed to be only VDC in Nepal where signal of mobile and wireless service is not available. Although Ncell and NTC have built low quality smaller towers on neighbouring Rangeli and Kanepokhari routes, no signal can be felt on device on this VDC. Ranjani Chowk in Drabesh only receives signal which is extremely low. However, Cable TV and electricity has reached there. Recent Survey estimates that if huge tower would be installed in Darbesha-1, it would be able to serve good quality of signal to smartphone and mobile users in whole Drabesha including neighbouring VDCs.


Major languages in this VDC includes Nepali and Maithili.

This VDC is thickly populated with major Nepalese ethnic groups such as Rajbanshi, Maithil (indigenous Madhesi), Brahmin and Chhetri.
