This review is done to understand status and global ranking of Nepal on Global Happiness index as well as to identify the importance of happiness index in the government’s agenda ‘Prosperous Nepal Happy Nepali’. For this numbers of journal articles and reports were consulted as secondary source of data and conclusion were drawn and summarized. No primary data were collected. Happiness index of Nepal, at present, is 4.913 and ranked at 100th position among the 156 countries of the world. The happiness index status has risen from data (4.156)2013 to (4.962)2017 but it decreased in 2018(4.88) and in 2019(4.913) it is slightly increased but not more than that of 2017. Similarly, ranking of Nepal also increased from 2013 to 2017 but it decreased in 2018 and in 2019 it moved by one and reached to 100th. As long as people want more wealth, they will tend to be somewhat dissatisfied if they don’t get in self-growth, leisure time and intimate relationships. Happiness index could be the basic idea of measurement for the government’s agenda ‘Prosperous Nepal Happy Nepali’.
