Kathmandu Metropolitan gives 24-hour ultimatum to remove illegal structures from Pashupati area
KATHMANDU, March 03: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has given a 24-hour ultimatum to remove structures built illegally by encroaching on the land in the Pashupati area.
Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) spokesperson Rewatiraman Adhikari, said that after inspecting the structure built by encroachment, the Metropolitan Corporation's team has informed that they have given an ultimatum with instructions to remove it.
He said, "We have not been formally informed by the metropolis." However, it has been heard that an ultimatum of 24 hours has been given to remove the encroached structures.
According to the metropolis, it was found that 10 ropani land is being operated under the name of Gaushala Dharamshala by renting 50,000 per annum from the fund. Similarly, in the Pashupati area, more than 20 shutters were found operating without registration during the inspection of the metropolis.
As Dharamshala has been found to have built structures without a map pass, such structures will also be removed, the metropolis said. On Wednesday, the trust wrote a letter to the metropolis and requested the removal of illegally constructed structures, illegal businesses and encroached structures without informing both the Pashupati Area Development Trust and the metropolis.
Accordingly, the metropolis monitored on Thursday and instructed to remove such structures within 24 hours.
