On April 2004, the former organization named NPSA was recognized by International Paralympic Committee (IPC) as the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) of Nepal which enabled NPSA in the name of NPC Nepal to make the historical participation for the first time ever to the Athens 2004 Paralympic Games, an Olympic Game of the Disabled, held in 17-28 September 2004.
