Provincial Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) for Finance Taimur Khan Jhagra has announced via his social media account that the KP government has increased the annual token tax discount on motor vehicles from 10% and 15% to 20%. He also mentioned that the last date to avail the said discount is the 30th of September 2020.
The KP government announced the previous discount on token tax back in June 2020. In a bid to offer further convenience to the vehicle owners, the government announced that the token taxes can also be paid online. The facility was offered while bearing in mind the rampant COVID-19 chaos in various regions of Pakistan.
The provincial government has also provided the public to check the registration of their vehicles online via Motor Transport Management Information System (MTMIS). To find out the registration of the vehicles, the owners can visit the official website, and see whether the vehicle is registered, or is being run on a temporary number. Once that’s done, the owner can provide the vehicle registration number, after which, the owner has to click on the search-tab for the information to be revealed.
KP government has taken a fair few steps to favor the public in recent days. The digitization drive is also being pursued in the province, much like the rest of the regions of Pakistan. However, the sustainability and reliability of the said developments shall only be determined once the systems are implemented in full force.
