Embossed plates to be introduced

Posted by Anup Baral Dec 29, 2017:
The government will start replacing hand-painted vehicle licence plates, which are in use for more than century, with embossed registration number plates from Monday.

The Department of Transport Management (DoTM) will install the embossed number plates in vehicles owned by the government in the first phase.
. “Based on the results of the pilot project, we will install embossed number plates in other vehicles,” DoTM Spokesperson Tok Raj Pandey said. Government agencies own an estimated 40,000 vehicles. According to Pandey, the department is planning to install embossed number plates in 500,000 automobiles in the next five years. The embossed number plates come with a microchip that enables the government to maintain uniformity in issuance of number plates and prevent duplication. Similarly, the new number plates also help authorities to maintain digital records of vehicles plying on the roads, collect revenue on time and control auto theft.

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.
