KATHMANDU, April 29: People no longer have to wait in lines for hours or wander to search the designated bank to pay fines for violating the traffic rules. The Kathmandu Metropolitan Traffic Police Office now has gone digital to collect fines from violators through QR code.
The service called ‘QR Scan Pay Fine and Withheld Document' came into effect from Thursday to facilitate the violators to pay the fine without having to go through procedural hassles.
The service, launched in collaboration with Kumari Bank Limited, was jointly inaugurated by SSP Umeshraj Joshi and the bank's digital chief Anil Tamrakar.
SSP Joshi said that the new technology was being adopted in the traffic management system of Nepal that is believed to further facilitate road users.
Similarly, Kumari Bank's digital chief Joshi pledged to continue the collaboration with the traffic police for better and swift services in the coming days.
