Though the keenness to migrate from Nepal exists among the citizens, the lack of demand has created this dip.

Madhu Pandit, a Foreign employment expert, opined that this dip would impact the country’s socio-economic health adversely in the long run. He stressed that the government has to remedy this situation as remittances are a significant source of income to the national economy.
