Good News:

The new Children’s Act, 2018 criminalizes corporal punishment of children, making Nepal the first country in South Asia and 54th country in the world to do so.

Section 7(5) of the Act states (unofficial translation):

“Each child has a right to be protected against all types of physical or mental violence and punishment, neglect, inhumane behavior, gender-based or discriminatory abuse, sexual abuse and exploitation committed by his/her father, mother, other family members or guardian, teacher or any other person.”
