The traffic jam during the office time is the headache for Citizens as well as Traffic Police in the Kathmandu Valley. So, to reduce Traffic Jam, the Government of Nepal has decided to change the school Hours.
They have planned in a way so the student can reach the school at 9 A.M. The school leave time could be 3 PM or 4 PM which is not set yet. The workplace has been sent to the Education Ministry by the Prime minister’s office.
The Secretary of Education, Science and Technology Ministry, Mr. Mahesh Prasad Dahal had said that he had received the Workplan of Change of School Timing in the Kathmandu Valley. He also stated that they are reviewing in this matter and this new educational session would be appropriate to implement it.
To finalize the work plan, the committee has been made. There are representatives of Kathmandu, Lalitpur Metropolitan City, Bhaktapur Municipality, Madhyapur Thimi Municipality, Bhaktapur Municipality, Traffic Police, PABSON, NPABSON, HISSAN and Guardian in the Committee.
The School timing is 10 A.M to 4 or 5 P.M as well as the office timing is also the same which causes the Traffic Jam during Morning and Evening Time.
Most private schools provide transportation services so the School timing may not apply to the Government Schools. There are fewer government schools that provide transportation services. This plan is made to target the Kathmandu Valley and City area outside the Valley.
