For the first time on 14th April, 2007 Dr Bodha Raj Subedi managed to gather most of Nepalese living in Poland and form NRN NCC, Poland ad hoc committee. This committee had managed to give continuation of NRNA movement in Poland. With great contribution of many Nepalese living in Poland, the 15 members of Founding Committee of NRNA NCC, Poland was finally formed under the leadership of Dr Bodha Raj Subedi and was registered in polish court as NON-RESIDENT NEPALESE IN POLAND (NRN-PL)” in 2009 ( KRS 0000331895). In the same year NRN-PL had been duly recognized as the national body of NRNs in Poland affiliated to the NRNA. The first convention after registration elected eleven members of executive committee and three members of auditing committee of NRN-PL in 2010. The second convention held in 2014 and third convention held in 2015 elected 11 members of executive committee , 3 members auditing committee and some members of advisory board under the leadership of Dr Bodha Raj Subedi .The forth convention held in 2017 elected 11 members of new executive committee under the leadership of Mr Gopal Rai, 3 members of auditing committee and 3 members of advisory board. During this 10 years of NRN movement in Poland , the NRN-PL had done a lots for the welfare of Nepalese living in Poland and in the situation of national disaster in Nepal like flood and earthquake etc. The only one registered Nepalese organization in Poland, NRN-PL wants to unite all Nepalese living in Poland. The aims are:

Thus NRN-PL is „For Nepali by Nepali”. Let’s together do something for us and for our beloved „ Matribhumi -Nepal”.
Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) was established with the purpose of uniting and binding the Nepali Diaspora under one umbrella on 11 October, 2003. In the course of completing 12 years of its existence NRNA has developed into a non-governmental global organization and a network of Nepali origin by establishing National Coordination Council (NCC) in 73 countries to represent its interests, concerns and commitments. Wherever we Nepalis may go or settle, whichever nationality we may possess, we never forget our land of origin, the land which holds our identity and soul. We rejoice in the achievement of our beloved country and her people and are disheartened by their sufferings and failures. Our belief:“Once a Nepali you always remain a Nepali”, is reinforced by our commitment to streamline our energy and resources for the transformation of the Nepali society. It is the duty and responsibility of every nation to promote, represent and safe guard the welfare of its nationals or people of its origin having foreign nationality and this will ultimately be in the interest of the nation. The national interest that can be fulfilled by the diasporas has not been hidden from the international arenas. The network of Nepali Diaspora represented by NRNA has developed itself into a formidable force that can represent Nepali interest globally. Keeping all these in mind, the Government of Nepal has given legal status to Nepali Diaspora by promulgating Non-Resident Nepali Act 2064. For practical purposes Nepali citizens living outside South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) member countries or People of Nepali Origin (PNO) holding foreign nationality other than SAARC nations are considered as NRNs.
