Kathmandu Metropolitan City has started an online map pass system (Naksa Pass). Announcing via a video post on Facebook, the city’s mayor Balen Shah said that the service has begun at its full capacity on Friday, April 14.
Shah said that the revised and improved service of online map pass in Kathmandu will shorten the process to 25 days. Presently, the same service takes around 2 to 3 months.
“Earlier, there was an electronic system in map pass, but there was only tracking,” he said, “but there was a problem of visiting one to another station and one to another desk. The process was very long. Our server was also slow.” He added that the online map pass system has been made fast and automatic by changing the server recently.

“You don’t need to print your map anymore. You don’t need to keep a map book. If you let an engineer make a map, it enters the system of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City in a digital form. And, from the same system, go to the architect, structural engineer, pay the tax, and the map can be prepared digitally within 25 days,” said Shah.
