KATHMANDU, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The regrouping process of Nepal' s People's Liberation Army (PLA) is almost nearing its conclusion.

PLA was the military wing of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M) when the party was at civil conflict.

A total of seven cantonments in different parts of the country which are housing around 19,500 PLA combatants after the commencement of the peace process in 2006 underwent the regrouping process which began on Nov. 18.

"The process now only remains in the fourth division, while it has been complete in the rest of the other cantonments," Coordinator of the Secretariat of the Army Integration Special Committee, Balananda Sharma told Xinhua on Monday.

The regrouping process was expected to end by Monday evening. However, due to some technical difficulties and hindrance that was created by some section of the PLA members due to dissatisfaction of few issues in the regrouping process, it could not be concluded as per the slated time.

"The regrouping process can be expected to end as of Tuesday," Sharma said.

As per the data until Sunday evening, 14,447 PLA members have undergone the regrouping process, where majority of them, about 60 percent, chose to be integrated, and around 40 percent opted for retirement.
