Butwal Sub-Metropolitan City has begun digital house numbering system. This allows people to look up their houses’ addresses online, by using Google or the Mobile app.
Former minister of Lumbini Province, Lila Giri had inaugurated the system on Saturday, April 3rd.
The digital house numbering system is currently available for the inhabitants of 1 – 13 wards. The Butwal Sub-Metropolitan City has a total of 19 wards.
With this electronic address system, people will be able to find addresses of public offices, schools and colleges, and private houses, Sub-Metro’s IT Officer Roshan Kumar Regmi said. Butwal Sub-Metro has carried out electronic addressing of many such structures in up to 13 wards so far. To find the address of a particular house, one can use Google or a mobile app.
We established the electronic house numbering system based on a geographic information system. It will be one step towards digitalizing Butwal, Regmi said. Now, people will be able to find out any house, office, or organization with its unique ID number online. And it only takes one to enter a house’s ID number and a few minor details here.
Benefits Of Digital House Numbering In Butwal
Asides from finding out addresses online, the electronic house address comes with many other advantages. For eg, people could use the system to help in verifying property maps, door-to-door service, and other private uses.
Likewise, the system includes data from farms, banks, financial institutions, educational institutions, hospitals, police stations, electricity offices, etc. So, anyone can search it up and find out details about the house or any office or organization online.
Besides, the online marketplace is booming in Nepal as of late. The digital house address system, thus, could further ease online delivery for the locals.

“The electronic address system is available for houses and other structures inwards 1 – 13 for now. The Sub-Metro though will soon complete adding the database to the remaining 6 wards soon,” Regmi said.
