How is taxi service in Kathmandu

Posted by Anup Baral October 01, 2016 :

Meter earthing came to light when a taxi was seized from the Gongabu area for tampering with the meter. Under the monitoring of the MTPD, a team, incorporating police and technicians from the Bureau of Standards and Metrology, was formed two weeks ago to monitor taxi irregularities. The team, in civvies, has already taken action against more than 300 taxis in the Capital. Cabbies who are found to have tampered with their meters are sent to the Bureau of Standards and Metrology for further action. The Bureau charges the taxi drivers with fine amounts ranging from Rs 2,000 to Rs 5,000. “In case of earthing, we may also seize the meter,” said Dhonju. According to him, only 11 dealers have licences to sell taxi meters in Kathmandu.
