The Department of Transport Management (DoTM) is now opening up an office at Jagati in Bhaktapur to oversee and provide driving licence-related services.
A rental arrangements have already been made to take a house on lease. The inauguration of the office is scheduled for Tuesday (December 20, 2016).
According to the department’s Branch Official Chiranjivi Sapkota, the preparations are being made for necessary infrastructure, furnishing works and installation of electricity lines. He further added that although the office opens on Tuesday, it could, however, take some days before service kicks off on a systematic basis.
The decision of the government to open transport offices at three locations including Bhaktapur comes following complaints of hassle and delay at the only Transport Management Office of the Kathmandu Valley at Ekantakuna in Lalitpur,
