There is no such relevant data available from outside of the valley but we have seen that the numbers of motorcycles being stolen are increasing in order. The recovery rate is only 18%, which means out of 100 motorcycles stolen, only 18 are found or recovered by Police. If we look at the Kathmandu valley data, in the fiscal year 2016-17, 1,030 cases were filed of vehicle theft, in 2017-18, 1,385 and in 2018-19, 1,611 incidents were recorded, which means the number of vehicle thefts incidents is growing as numbers of vehicles are increasing.

How did this idea come to life?

After the first lockdown, various incidents of vehicle theft began to go public in the areas around us. Even in various newspapers and online news portals, they had to read the news of missing and stolen vehicles on a daily basis. Although it was reported that a gang of thieves was caught in some places, it was very difficult to find the stolen vehicles safely. Even local garage mechanics became involved in the vehicle theft gang, so there was less chance of vehicles being found in a single piece. As they were outraged by such news, there was also a mixed feeling about what if their motorcycle gets stolen that easily. In this process, they began to search for various tracking devices online. They also bought a GPS tracker from an online platform called Daraz and operated the device, but due to the lagginess of a Chinese server as well as not so responsive mobile app, they had to face the problem of GPS not being accurate and real-time data being slow. There were some Nepali GPS providers as well but their fees were very expensive.
