KATHMANDU: People no longer have to wait in hours or wander to search the designated bank to pay the fine for traffic rules violations. The Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police Office now has gone digital to collect fines from violators through QR code.

The facility ‘QR Scan Pay Fine and Withheld Document’ has come into effect since 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 Bank’s digital chief Anil Tamrakar.

SSP Joshi said that new technology was being adopted in the traffic management system of Nepal which is believed to further facilitate the road users.

Similarly, Bank’s digital chief Joshi pledged to continue collaboration with the traffic police for better and swift services in the coming days.
