In this work, we have studied lepton flavor violating (LFV) decays of Z gauge boson and Higgs boson (H) in the scotogenic model. We have computed branching ratios for the decays and in this model. Here, and are different charged lepton fields. After fitting to the neutrino oscillation observables in the scotogenic model, we have found that the branching ratios for the LFV decays of Z and H can be as large as and respectively. However, after satisfying the constraints due to non-observation of decays, the above mentioned branching ratio results are found to be suppressed by a factor of .
