Although the Nepalese Army’s regular infantry troops are the tools of disaster response their competency at times becomes questionable. Their disaster response’s soft skill knowledge, technical skill knowledge and preparedness activities along with the perception of senior army officers have been analyzed. As per the result the disaster response competency of such troops needs improvements. The organization should focus on competency building activities. Besides, the perception of senior army officers is positive and convincing towards disaster response engagement.
