Metropolitan traffic office making transition into digital systemAround 2,500 service seekers have availed of online services in the past one month.
Metropolitan Traffic Police Division, Kathmandu, is making a successful transition into a digital service system which it started a month ago.
According to the division office, it has served 2,500 service seekers via its online system in the past one month.
The division office had announced to carry all its paper-based services digitally after 342 traffic police personnel contracted Covid-19.
It started offering online services for works such as filling up forms for lost licence, bluebook and route permit from September 21.
Senior Superintendent Bhim Prasad Dhakal, chief at the division, said the new system has reduced the risk of coronavirus transmission.
“All service seekers are advised to get all digitally available services from their home. It’s not a difficult job,” said Dhakal.
Everyday around 200 people file applications for the lost documents, according to the division's record.
According to Rameshwor Yadav, spokesperson at the division, 1,710 people have obtained recommendation letters for re-issuance of lost documents through the online system.
Applicants can fill the forms on the division's website, traffic.nepalpolice.gov.np.
The division office has also updated the fines related to traffic rule violations on its website.
Yadav said the division office is coordinating with different banks and developing a software for online fine payment.
“We will start this drive within this month, now the traffic rule violators will be paying fine in five minutes. This will also help us maintain transparency,” said Yadav.
