The government of Nepal is preparing to open the popular Thamel and Durbarmarg areas of Kathmandu for 24-hour business operations. This initiative follows instructions from Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane.

Chief District Officer Jitendra Basnet has met with stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition, emphasizing security measures and fair pricing practices for businesses. The District Security Committee has developed a plan to address potential security concerns.

“We will implement an integrated plan, adapting as needed after the markets open,” said Basnet.
