KATHMANDU, Aug 30: The government is shifting the authority over cable car operation permissions to the local level. The Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport had been holding onto the issue since the past 3 years to develop a new work process for the registration and fees determination. During that time, only the Tourism Ministry could approve cable car projects.

Senior Division Engineer of the Infrastructure Ministry, Druva Shrestha, said that as the government prepares to assign the responsibility of approving cable car projects to the local level, the pending application files of two dozen cable car projects have been sent down to local authorities.
