You don’t need to go to the Transport Management Offices and wait in a long queue to pay vehicle tax in Nepal. Nepal government is in the final stage of making different services cashless through the use of a digital payment system.
It has recently introduced Nagarik App with which you can easily renew your license online without any hassle. Here’s is a complete guide to help you to pay your vehicle tax online in Nepal.
What is Nagarik App?
Nagarik App is a mobile application launched by the Government of Nepal to provide government-related services on a single online platform. The main intention behind launching this app is to reduce the queues outside the office and encourage digital transactions.
You get different services like PAN registration, police clearance report, Health insurance details, opening a bank account online, viewing educational documents, paying taxes, etc through this app. As this app is in the development phase, different services are under construction and will be added in the near future.
How to register for Nagarik App?
In order to use the Nagarik app, you must be a Nepali citizen. After that, you need a mobile number registered under your name and Identification Document (Citizenship, Voter Card or Passport).
You can easily download and register Nagarik App through Playstore or Apple store. I have already written an article on how to register for Nagarik App. If you haven’t made a Nagarik App account yet, you can go through this article if you need help.

After registering for Nagarik App, you can see your Vehicle Tax details and pay the tax amount. The government is coordinating with different Transport Management Offices all over the country to start the services soon.
