COVID-19 impact: KMC receives increasing number of complaints about vacating rented apartments


KATHMANDU:- The judicial committee at the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has received increasing number of complaints about vacating rented apartments. Since the prohibition order was imposed over COVID-19, many tenants in Kathmandu district left for their homes or elsewhere and still did not return.

As a result, their landlords in Kathmandu have been affected—neither can they get payments for their rented apartments nor they themselves can vacate them to rent out them to new people, said the KMC.

Out of the total 283 complaints related to the matter registered at the committee until July 4, 2021 (128 in the fiscal year, 2019/20 and remaining 155 in the FY, 2020/21), 106 have been settled, said the KMC. Likewise, 147 are under consideration.

Efforts are underway to address the complaints as well, said Saroj Dhakal, member of the committee. “It takes 90 days to resolve a case. There is a delay in this regard due to the infection. We will settle remaining cases soon,” he said.

Likewise, the committee has received many cases relating to construction of house, roads and installation of water taps among others, he said.
