POKHARA: Pokhara Metropolitan City (PMC) has withdrawn its decision to halt the operation of paragliding companies after the latter agreed to clear their long overdue arrears.
With the decision, the paragliding companies will continue their flights as usual.
The PMC had warned to halt flights of all the paragliding companies from today if they did not clear their dues. They have not cleared their dues for the last three years.
The paragliding entrepreneurs agreed to clear their dues in a meeting held between Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, PMC and Nepal Paragliding and Hang Gliding Association.
With the agreement, each company will pay Rs 86,000 within a week, said Rana Bahadur Thapa, chairman of MPC-18. Over 60 paragliding companies have been operating flights in Pokhara.
