Bus ticket booking for Dashain opens today
Sep 12, 2017-Bus ticket booking for Dashain will open on Tuesday. Though advance ticket booking was scheduled to open on September 7, it was delayed after a dispute between the transport entrepreneurs and authorities over a number of issues like transport fare and allowing vehicles to have carrier on the roof.
After an agreement between the transport entrepreneurs and the Department of Transport Management on Saturday, a decision was taken to open advance ticket booking from Tuesday.
More than two million people are expected to leave the Valley for their hometowns to celebrate the 10-day Dashain festival which starts on September 21 with Ghatasthapana.
Rup Narayan Bhattarai, director general of DoTM, said his office would deploy five inspection teams to monitor ticket counters to ensure that no one is cheated.
