Kathmandu Metro sets parking fees for two and four-wheelers: find the rates

Kathmandu Metropolitan City has fixed parking fees for two and four-wheelers. The local government set the new parking rates as per its Financial Act 2080 effective from Shrawan 01, FY 2080/81.

The metropolis assured that the new parking charges have been determined to bring uniformity within its jurisdiction. It has also appealed to the public to inform the authority if they are charged more than the prescribed fare.

However, buildings used for commercial purposes such as marts, restaurants, shopping complexes, malls, hospitals, and other health service providers within the Kathmandu metropolis are not allowed to charge any parking free from any vehicle owners.

No taxes on buildings for parking purposes

Also, buildings constructed for commercial parking purposes will be exempted from property tax for 10 years. The metropolis has warned that it will take strict action against those who use an area for other commercial purposes that have been approved for parking.

The metro will supposedly collect property tax and others from such places. The city government led by Balen Shah has been very strict regarding the unauthorized use of areas designed for parking. The city says that no permission will be given to operate vehicle parking on public roads.

Kathmandu Metro’s decision to implement parking fees has already been met with strong criticism on social media as many have complained that the parking rates are too costly and unacceptable.
