Traffic police in Kathmandu have decided to impose the odd-even rationing system for traffic management of the city on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (13, 14 and 15 Bhadra)this week.
Accordingly, vehicles with odd number plates can ply roads of the Valley on Wednesday and Friday because these are odd dates as per the Nepali calendar. Only even numbered vehicles will operate on Thursday.
The decision was made to avert possible traffic congestion in the city as Kathmandu is hosting the fourth summit of Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) on Thursday and Friday.
The decision will be applied to all private and government vehicles including two-wheeler, according to the Metropolitan Traffic Police Division.
