Online application service for driving licence begins

Posted by Anup Baral December 25, 2016 :
Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Ramesh Lekhak confirmed that he would inaugurate the much-awaited online application system at the TMO in Ekantakuna, Lalitpur tomorrow. “I am scheduled to inaugurate the first of its kind online system at 3:00pm and the TMO will start receiving and processing driving licence applications submitted online from the next day,” he said at a programme organised in Kathmandu today. Minister Lekhak also informed that the government had already initiated the process of opening three more outlets of the TMO, Bagmati in Kalanki, Chabahil and Bhaktapur for issuance of licence in a manner to reduce the work burden currently being shouldered by the Ekantakuna office. According to the Department of Transport Management, the online system aims to make the driving licence application process efficient and hassle-free. This service will be available in Bagmati zone only. After the launch of the online application system, people will not have to wait in long queues to submit their driving licence applications.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
