After establishing the Tourism Ministry on August 18, it ordered the Tourism Department to take the action against the 15 liaison officers who lied that they did the Everest base camp trek during the climbing season. By following this order, the department has sought the clarification from those officers for not reporting to the work and has given the 15 days as an ultimatum for the valid statement.

According to Meera Acharya, the Director of Tourism Department, 37 officers in total, were deployed to go to the base camp of Mt. Everest. But only 22 of them fulfilled their job. So, Archarya has announced that the action is going to take against those remaining 15 officers for not submitting the authentic reasons.

Yogesh Bhattarai, the Tourism Minister had already said that the liaison officers who did not fulfill the duties, will never be assigned the role again. So, the Nepal government is planning to fire those 15 officers who scooped up the government allowance without fulfilling their assignment to go to EBC.
