According to the municipal survey held in 2018, the municipality has a total of 71,809 population and 20,059 households. Anyone willing to build new house in old and traditional style would get support from the municipality, said deputy mayor Darai.

The municipality which is believed to be the place where sages Veda Byas and Parashar meditated aims to preserve Chautari, ponds, wells, taps and open public places, according to the deputy mayor.

Furthermore, a Byas Jhula, suspension bridge linking Byas cave and place where Parashar sage mediated will be implemented. Historical places such as Tanahusur Durbar area, Devi Danda, Swami Park and Siddeshwor Rajapani Mahadev among others will be protected and promoted, informed Darai.

Also, the municipality having 14 wards will bar mobilization of any heavy equipment that adversely affect environmental balance in the locality. To get rid of the maze of electricity and other cable wires, the municipality will manage electricity lines underground, she said.
