The first direct bus service between New Delhi and Nepal’s famous tourist spot Pokhara has been launched to connect South Asia’s two important cities. The bus service was launched as per the Motor Vehicle Agreement (MVA) signed between India and Nepal during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Nepal visit in 2014. After the signing of the agreement, regular buses ply on Kathmandu-New Delhi, Kathmandu-Varanasi and Mahendranagar-Delhi routes and vice versa.
The bus service was flagged off by Nepal Home Minister Shakti Bahadur Basnet and India’s ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae from Pokhara. The bus service is a joint initiative of the Modern Era Tours and Travels Pvt Ltd of Nepal and Uttar Pradesh State Road transport Corporation (UPSRTC),Ghaziabad depot, of India. Under this initiative, altogether eight modern deluxe AC buses, four from each side have started plying between Pokhara and Delhi.
