Government removes odd-even rule for public vehicles in Valley
KATHMANDU: The government has decided to remove the odd-even number plate system for the public vehicles in the Kathmandu Valley.
A meeting of the Chief District Officers of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur held this evening made the decision to this effect.
The decision will come into effect from today midnight, Chief District Officer of Kathmandu Govinda Prasad Rijal said.
The rule, however, will be continued for the private vehicles and taxis.
The Covid-19 Crisis Management Centre (CCMC) this afternoon had recommended the government to lift the odd-even rule for public vehicles.
Earlier on January 21, the government had re-introduced the odd-even number plate rule for the vehicles to curb the spread of Covid-19.
