The odd-even rule applicable to private and public vehicles in Kathmandu Valley has been removed as the prohibitory order is extended till July 15.
A meeting of Chief District Officers (CDOs) of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur Sunday has done away with the odd-even rule in the prohibitory order to come into effect from Tuesday. The prohibitory order has been extended until July 15.
Assistant Chief District Officer Umakanta Adhikari on Sunday said now all vehicles can ply the roads by following health safety standards.
Likewise, public vehicles such as three-wheeler rickshaws, and vehicles with less than 25 seats can also operate. However, microbuses are not allowed to carry more than 9 passengers.
Moreover, the CDOs have allowed to run examinations that were previously scheduled; an examination hall though should not accommodate more than 25 exam-appearing students.
Likewise, transportation of construction material can be done from 10 pm to 5 am.
