Vehicle Fitness Centre fails to meet the expectation


KATHMANDU: The Vehicle Fitness Centre at Teku in Kathmandu set up by the Department of Transport Management has not worked up to the mark since its capacity is less than need.
The Centre which carries out tests regarding the road’s conditions and pollution tests of all public vehicles operating in Kathmandu Valley can only conduct pollution tests on 60 vehicles per day.
The recently operated Centre’s performance has not been satisfactory since tests could be conducted on five to six vehicles per hour and the Centre runs for seven hours a day only, said Centre’s chief Ramchandra Poudel.
There are around 900,000 vehicles that ply roads in Kathmandu Valley daily, according to the Department of Transport Management.
“The Centre also determines the capacity of the electric vehicles,” informed Poudel, underscoring the need to set up similar centres across the country.
He also pointed out the need to conduct the regular tests on all vehicles, big or small, private or public and that of diplomatic missions as well.
Poudel argued that the renewal of the vehicles should be allowed after conducting pollution tests on the vehicles.
