The Paper closely looks at the application of 'doctrine of necessity' in Nepalese Constitutional Law. This is an attempt to summarize those case laws which deal on the aspects of constitutional amendment when Nepal is passing through a phase of political and constitutional Transition. On a close view, we observe that 'doctrine of necessity' was used a single powerful tool to validate the constitutional amendments when it relates to extension of term of Constituent Assembly in Nepal which have been elected to draft and promulgate a new Constitution. However, in one of the final verdicts, SC of Nepal has made it clear that 'doctrine of necessity' can not forever extend the term of Constituent Assembly. Therefore, this paper can be taken as a close look on emergence and fall of this doctrine in Nepalese constitutional law discourse.
