Abstract: Routine road maintenance through Road Maintenance Group (RMG) is a new concept. The core objective of this study is to assess group formation for output- based routine maintenance practices in District Road Core Network (DRCN) of Surkhet district. Six out of nine DRCN roads were selected which were under routine maintenance through District Development Committee (DDC) District Technical Office (DTO). Qualitative and quantitative approach was adopted. Journal, articles, research papers, books, internet were referred. Interim guidelines of Road Maintenance Group (RMG) from the DTO, Surkhet and norms for Length worker from Division Road Office (DOR) were collected and analyzed. Sampling was applied for RMG workers within five percent of true value of its proportion. Scheduled survey was done with different set of questionnaire.

Descriptive analysis was done to document maintenance practice and formation of maintenance group. Even difficult task can be done through RMG.
