KATHMANDU, Sept 4: A bill drafted by the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration proposes barring the local units from recruiting civil servants on their own. Revising the draft bill prepared to replace the Civil Service Act with the Federal Civil Service Bill, the ministry has barred the local units from recruiting civil servants themselves.
