Lalitpur Metropolitan begins metric house address system, houses, and roads to get digital IDs

Lalitpur Metropolitan City has brought over 60 thousand houses in its political territory into the metric address system. The local body has updated and distributed house numbers of 60 thousand and 988 houses which are based on the road network and metric system.

The move follows the resolution the municipality adopted 6 years ago. In 2074 BS, the Municipal Assembly decided to distribute the house numbers in its jurisdiction as per the road network and metric system. With the digital numbering in place, it will be easier for people to meet someone in Lalitpur as identifying people’s residences in the city has become more feasible. 

Lalitpur Metro’s Geographical Information System (GIS) Officer Uttam Karki informed that 60,988 houses in all 29 wards of the metropolitan city have been distributed house numbers based on the road network and metric system.

At the implementation of the metric address in Lalitpur, the city’s Mayor Chiribabu Maharjan said, “This is a crucial foundation for a smart city. From this, it will be easy to collect the revenue collected by the metropolis on time, and it will be easy to provide the services provided to the citizens on time.”

In this house numbering system, odd numbers are assigned to the houses to the right and odd numbers to the left from the main intersection of the road. Officer Uttam Karki said that the assigned number is based on the distance from the main square (chowk) to the main square of the house.
