As the vehicles made in Nepal are battling with the issue of registration, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has assured to take the issue seriously.

“The complaint that vehicles produced in Nepal, including ‘Yatri’, are not able to be registered is taken seriously. I have directed the relevant agencies to immediately proceed with the legal arrangements,” PM Dahal tweeted.

Since Nepal’s Motor Vehicles and Transport Management Act, 1993, does not have a provision for the registration of vehicles made in Nepal, the users of such vehicles are facing problems in Nepal.

With no number plates, owing to registration hurdles, the users have to face trouble during traffic police checking.

The issue came into the limelight after Yatri Motorcycles, an electric vehicle company popular among Nepali youngsters, stated they approached the government’s relevant departments to register its vehicles but made no progress.

Earlier, lawmaker Sumana Shrestha submitted a letter to the Ministry of Transportation to look into the issue of vehicle registration problems in Nepal.
