(TibetanReview.net, Feb27’19) – Nepal has started compiling data on Tibetan refugees living in the country not with any view to register them but to be able to check them online to ensure that their number, estimated to be around 14,000, not do increase further with new arrivals, according to a newspaper report Feb 26. The country stopped accepting additional Tibetan refugees in 1989, and issuing refugee cards to Tibetans in 1995 under pressure from China to deny them any sort of legal status.

In a bid to control the entry of new Tibetan refugees into Nepal and their anti-China activities, the government has begun collecting details of them and recording them on software, reported english.onlinekhabar.com, citing a vernacular Rajdhani Daily newspaper report.

The report gave no other details. It said the original news story was in just two columns long.

The report expressed belief that around 14,000 Tibetan refugees were residing in various places of Nepal. english.onlinekhabar.com also cited an Annapurna Post report as saying Feb 25 that trade activities via Tatopani border point between Nepal and Chinese ruled Tibet were likely to resume by May. The border point was closed after the 2015 earthquake damaged key infrastructures at the point and a road connecting Kathmandu and Tatopani.

And the report said China had agreed to reopen it after Nepal assured that no anti-China activities will take place through this border post.
