The Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare has proposed that Dharma Raj Shrestha be appointed the executive director of Central Child Welfare Board (CCWB). The post has been vacant since March, 2007. Shrestha’s nomination came along with the proposal of forming an executive committee of the CCWB.

The existing 21-member executive committee will be dissolved after the formation of a new one.
