KMC orders to remove unsystematic cables within 15 days

Kathmandu: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) Office has given a 15-day deadline to the bodies concerned for removing electric, telephone and internet wires placed haphazardly along the streets.

Issuing a press statement today, the local government said unorganized cables have implications for the beauty of the town, cause obstructions in public movement and create a risk of a fire.

If the order was not implemented on time, the local government said it would remove them on its own. As the KMC said, it is sensitive towards the possible risks from the unorganized cables and has already sat for talks with providers of electricity, telephone, internet and cable services at different times with the call to remove devices, but the problem remains as it is.
