To operate the proportional, justiciable and balance development in the country, the concept of development region was derived. Therefore Nepal is divided into five development regions.
|S.N.||Name of Development Regions of Nepal||Headquarter||Area||No. of zones||No. of districts||No. of V.D.C.|
|1||Eastern Development Region||Dhankuta||28,456 km2 (10,986.9 sq mi)||3||16||893|
|2||Central Development Region||Kathmandu||27,410 km2 (10,583.1 sq mi)||3||19||1199|
|3||Western Development Region||Pokhara||29,398 km2 (11,350.6 sq mi)||3||16||864|
|4||Mid-western Development Region||Birendranagar||42,378 km2 (16,362.2 sq mi)||3||15||575|
|5||Far-western Development Region||Dipayal||19,539 km2 (7,544.1 sq mi)||2||9||383|
Any two causes for not having proportionate development in five development region are:

Nepal is full of geographical diversity. It has been divided into Himalayan, Hill and Terai on the basis of environmental features. Its altitude ranges from 60 m to 8848 m. Although it has an influence of tropical monsoon climate, it is partly influenced with Mediterranean in the west. Terai is varying fertile whereas Hill and Himalayan have less.
Central development region is the most developed region because all the sorts of developmental infrastructures are well available here and the status of people is comparatively better than other development regions. For example Health, education, transportation, drinking water, communication facility are found comparatively better here.
First of all, Nepal was divided into four development regions in B.S. 2029.They were-
|Development Region||Headquarters Area|
|Eastern Development Region||Dhankuta-28,456 sq.km.|

|Western Development Region||Pokhara-29,398 sq.km|
|Mid- western Development Region||Birendranagar-12,378 sq.km.|
|Far- western Development Region||Dipayal-19,539 sq.km.|
