You’ll Soon be Able to Register Vehicles, Pay Tokens Online

Motor registration has always been a tedious task because of all the manual paperwork required. Those who find it a pain will be relieved to know that they will be able to register their Motor Vehicles Online.

Recently the Minister for Finance, Taxation, and Excise Punjab Mian Mujtaba Shuja ur Rehman announced that the Excise and Taxation Department is finalizing a plan to connect all 36 districts of Punjab.

The move to an Online Vehicle Registration system will allow for a lot of flexibility. Applicants will be able to register online and choose from a selection of numbers. It will also facilitate the payment of token tax online, whereupon they will get the stickers detailing the token tax details.

According to the minister,

“Number plates will also have the qualities of our social set up, known personalities, security features and identification of the vehicles would be easier than the present system.”

They believe that this system will make it easier to get rid of corruption and allow for a proper record of all vehicles in the province. It should also help them streamline the tax revenues by improving the current system.

This facility is in addition to the online vehicle verification system which was launched a year ago. Applicants have also been able to get their computerized number plates by using existing SMS services. The move to an e-governance system should make it easier for citizens and save them a lot of time.

    • Ahmed Habib

      Ask PK… oky??

  • Musleh Uddin Ahmad

    This software/program should be implemented through out Pakistan. Ministry of Finance should issue instruction to this effect. There is much leakage in MVT department.

  • rashid

    Commendable, if they are able to pull it off, should not be that hard though, also this should be a implemented nation wide.

  • Mirza Moazzam Baig

    Good to know that punjab government is doing something … in contrast all the other provincial governments have no idea whatsoever . . . Kudos for Punjab Government and PML-N . . . . This is called silent change/revolution . . .

    • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

      Yes like we had the automation of land records in PUNJAB !!!! Lols. This is the initiative of Dr. Umar Saif who has to fight with these corrupt Sultans of Punjab for launching these initiatives. The patwaris in Punjab have not allowed that system to go forward lets see how soon this system of vehicle record automation will take to get in motion.

      PTI is doing wonders in KPK with the limited funds that they have at their disposal. Public schools have been transformed and new classrooms have been built in a lot of schools including my village in Mansehra ( Although PTI didnt win a seat their in the last elections ). School teacher attendance has gone up from an abysmal 30-40% to more than 90% courtesy a vigilance branch of 600 invigilators specially recruited for this purpose. Public hospitals are offering wonderful service for the first time in the history of KPK and in Pakistan. New Doctors and Teachers are being inducted and their salaries are being increased in order to demand better performance from their for the sake of betterment of the population. Police has become impartial which is never going to happen in Punjab where 800 of them are only guarding the Royal palace of Raiwind and people are getting killed in daylight in the center of the city in cavalary ground.

      • Mirza Moazzam Baig

        lol

      • Mirza Moazzam Baig

        lol . . . PTI burgers .. . . . . . I don’t want to get started here as this is not the platform to start political wars. . . . I just know this that my vote did not went wasted (though it would’ve gone wasted if i had voted for PTI) . . . .
        #burnol .. oh but even that won’t help. . . . .

        • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

          This is the extent of the mental prowess of the patwaris. After all they are bound to follow their dumb leaders. The way these Shareefs have destroyed the Agri sector of the rural population , that has eroded the only support base that they had in rural punjab.

          • Mirza Moazzam Baig

            Burnol Alert . . . Arrogant … self-obsessive PTI trolls.

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              Its actually a lineage alert and your patwari lineage steñçh is unbearable. Good riddance with your mentality. Its only the corrupt retards like you who are still siding with this government because they are benefitting from this corrupt government one way or the other

              • Mirza Moazzam Baig

                Well if the sole purpose of PTI was to “brag off” their steps taken in education, then surely PTI won.

                But the real purpose (to improve literacy rate and minimalise the drop-out rate) has died somewhere. . . .so stop jumping off your seat. People will vote for PTI if these steps are really being taken. Till then Shut it. and get prepared your deep noses to smell this ” Patwari Lineage Stench” for another 5 years.. . . . “Good Riddance” well not so quick (probably never)…
                and for me being corrupt .. well I am as corrupt as any other undergrad student in this country. If my political affiliation makes me a Retard . . so be it. . . . . I’m not benefiting from this gov like “murad saeed(record holder in Fastest graduation)” benefited from KPK government’s Flawless education system.
                lol again . .. c’mon now beat it before it’s too late . . . . stop trolling around and advocating for iLzam Khan.
                stop littering here … litter in your dirty political space.

          • Ahmad Khan Sabri

            Dear shareefs are working very hard than khans. Please first compare their work and than do some comment. In KPK no metro bus is still running.

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              Sir let me give you some perspective please so that your notion of me commenting without any proof is quashed. I am a LUMS Grad who run s his little software export thingy along with being ac active progressive farmer with family lands in Okara 7-4/L. I was born and raised in Lahore but my village is in Mansehra and i visit frequently.

              Now coming to the performance of PTI in the last 18 months. PTI is the first in the history of the Pakistan who has allocated 25% of the provincial budget for Education thats unpredented in the History of Pakistan. This 25% budget has ensured that a teacher invigilation unit of 600 personnel has been hired and is responsible for a dramatic change in teacher attendance at government schools. New classrooms have been built in the government schools in all over KPK and i have witnessed these new classrooms myself in the schools of Mansehra and Abottabad. Around 11% has been allocated for the Health sector which has allowed the construction and upgradation of new government hospitals. Poor people are getting free service and Free MEDICINE for the first time in pakistan. The X Ray machines and the Ultra sound machines have been provided in the government hospitals to alleviate the sufferings of the Poor masses. Every mother who delivers a baby at a government hospital is given 2700 Rs in 3 tranches to ensure that he visits the hospitals for post natal checkups.

              • Mirza Moazzam Baig

                oh shoot!

                • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

                  Lols , you really believe these newspapers ROFL. I would request to visit some Rural schools in Punjab so that you can know the standard of education in Punjab. You can come visit the government school in Okara 7-4/L which is adjacent to my daira so that you can understand the pathetic standard of schools , teachers and the unfortunate poor pupils. Drop out rate in Punjabs schools is more than 50% and most of the rest dont go past metric. If you are happy with the state of Pakistan after the 25 years combined rule of Sharifs then all the power to you!!!! STAY BLESSED

                • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

                  Indias Exports have reached 500 Billion Dollars per year where as we are languishing at a paltry 25 Billion dollars per year. This is because result of the nexus of PPP and PMLN and i really pity the supporters of PMLN . the few that are left anyway, because they have to calm their conscience on indirectly supporting Zardari as well. Aka JOSHE KHITABAT :D

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              Similarly the salaries of the government teachers and government doctors and paramedics are being increased so that the quality of education and health facilities that are being provided to the poor can be brought at par to the those being provided in the private sector.

              Similarly Police has been depoliticised for the first time in the history of Pakistan through meritorious appointments and by inductance of the state of the art laboratories like the DNA and forensics lab in peshawar which would be inaugarated in June 2015. This reinvigorated Police force has quashed land and Tree Mafia and has also busted most of the high profile criminals in KPK athough a lot more needs to be done in this regard

              Similarly the forest department has confiscated trees worth billions of Rupees in the last year and illegal cutting machines have been confiscated. Work on a number of small dams is in progress like one in Jaboaree which is near my village. Government schools have been equipped with sports equipment which has allowed the poor to indulge in quality sports.

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              I would request everyone to visit KPK on their own and inquire the poor population about the performance of the KPK government rather than listening to the paid media….

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              As far as Metro is concerned i would like you to visit rural areas of Punjab like the one in Okara where my Daira is and you will know the standard of Government schools and Hospitals. we all know about the Gulloos of Punjab police and the way they work.

              PTI has just introduced digital land record management in Mardan and whole of the records of KPK would be automated by 2017 which will eradicate the corrupt role of Patwaris like the rest of Pakistan.

            • Shehryar Shaukat Khan

              http://www.dawn.com/news/1136612 just look at this article by a civiil engineer living in the Gulf who has provided comparisons of the costs of the shareeefs Metro projects with those that have been completed else where in the world

      • Ahmad Khan Sabri

        PTI…., only can think negative for others. She must focus on their job and they will do much better if their focus is on their job only.

    CM’s rural roads project launched

    Under the project, all rural roads will be reconstructed and repaired during the next 3 years at a cost of Rs150bn. —Dawn/File

    LAHORE: The Khadam-i-Punjab Daihi (rural) Roads Programme was formally launched in every district of the province on Sunday.

    In the first phase of the project, one rural road has been selected for repairs and reconstruction in each district.

    Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif launched the project in Kasur, while at other places the districts coordination officers (DCOs) performed the task. The concerned members of national and provincial assemblies were directed to join the opening ceremonies in the districts.

    Under the project, all rural roads will be repaired and reconstructed in a phased manner during the next three years at a cost of Rs150 billion.

    The chief minister opened repair and reconstruction work on eight-kilometre long Ladheke Bhullar-Pando Road in Suey Aasal area, terming it the largest road development work in the country’s history.

    All rural roads in Punjab will be rebuilt during the next three years at a cost of Rs150 billion

    Talking to the media after the ceremony, he said Rs15 billion had been allocated in the current year for the repair and construction of 2,000 km long roads in the rural areas of the province.

    He said under the programme the width of carpeted roads would be increased from 10 feet to 12 and after including shoulders their total width would be 24 feet.

    Shahbaz Sharif hoped the project would strengthen the rural economy and directly benefit farmers and other dwellers of villages, besides creating thousands of jobs.

    He said a high standard of work would be ensured in the project’s execution and third-party audit would be compulsory before making payments to the contractors.

    He said the contractors had been selected transparently and their labour would be given cash prizes and commendatory certificates on successful completion of work.

    Similarly, he said, 10 best engineers would also be extended given cash prizes and commendatory certificates.

    However, he warned, anyone found involved in malpractice would be strictly punished.

    He said that he would personally monitor the programme and pay surprise visits to inspect the work quality.

    They have mental preset if you say something about KPK they will immediately point you out as PTI supporter but in fact the KPK is improving with limited resources and without commission in awarding the big projects

  • Syed Waqar Hussain

    No hard feelings to anyone!

    Its not about only software implementation or Punjab government. You must know that this kind of implementation brings “Change” in many dimensions, specially when you are going to attempt it for Government agencies.

    It has been noticed that Punjab Government is more adaptable towards change in culture, practices and procedures, but unfortunately I do not see it in my own province or city.

    Anyways, congratulations to Punjab for another milestone.

  • Ahmed

    How soon will this be implemented?

  • ohh really its been over 2 years , where is the online tax pay system ?
