DoTM Banning Operation of Old Vehicles From Chaitra

The Department of Transport Management (DoTM) is to ban the operation of the vehicles that have been running for two decades across the country from coming Chaitra (March-April).

The Department is to amend the Motor Vehicle and Transport Management Regulations – 2054 BS before they put a ban on two decades old vehicles.

Why it matters:

  • The air pollution of Kathmandu valley is increasing day by day. This decision of the department can go a long way to improve the condition of air in the valley.

What they are saying:

  • Department’s Director General Rup Narayan Bhattarai says that the decision to remove two-decade old vehicles from the Kathmandu Valley from February last year has yet to be fully enforced.
  • But, this time the Department plans to take strong actions against cases of violation of the order.
  • However, this ban is not applicable for taxi and electric vehicles.
  • Currently, there are around 5,500 two-decade old vehicles across the country.
