Kathmandu: Department of Transport has decided to enforce the embossed number plate for the vehicles from tomorrow. Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport (MoPIT) had sought the suggestions from Ministry of Finance for the same last year and after a long consultation it is coming into effect.
Enforcement of the machine-made number plates will help the traffic police maintain uniformity in the issuance of vehicle numbers, manage vehicular movement, maintain scientific record of vehicles and control auto theft, among others issues, said Department Spokesperson Tokraj Pandey.
With this new provision in place, vehicles could be identified easily and their activities monitored from radio frequency from five check points of the Kathmandu Valley and other five from outside the Kathmandu Valley. Transport Minister Bir Bahadur Balayar is scheduled to launch the service amid a function at the Department Monday.
