Govt Announces Big Relief for Islamabad and Punjab’s Car Owners

The number of Islamabad and Punjab-registered cars is rising across Pakistan. Considering that, the Punjab government has decided to offer relief to car owners from these regions.

The Director General (DG) of the Punjab Excise and Taxation Department, Muhammad Ali, has introduced a new policy allowing Islamabad-registered car owners to access inspection services in Punjab and vice versa.

This will offer convenience to vehicle owners and distribute inspection centers across multiple locations to reduce the backlog. The practical implementation and potential challenges of this policy remain to be seen.

The DG added that this action was taken as per the Supreme Court’s orders. A mobile application has been developed for verifying vehicle registration and chassis numbers in Punjab and Islamabad, he stated.

The DG further said,

This project is very important because there are a large number of vehicles with Islamabad number in Punjab and one has to go to Islamabad to change the ownership of the vehicle so this is a big relief for the citizens provided by the government in view of the extremely expensive fuel expenditures.

He highlighted that physical inspection will be available in Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, and Bahawalpur. He added that the relevant staff has been trained thoroughly to ensure the successful execution of this project.

  • When this is going to be implemented ? And from where we can process ?

  • It is suggested to provide peshawar also one inspection mobile unit or center

  • Is this a big relief? ????
    People should be thankful to Supreme Court instead of praising DG.out of proportion.

  • Government of KPK should also consider such step by including Peshawar and at at least 2 other citues

  • This is a good step which will be appreciated by everyone. However, In this modern age ,such facility must be made available throughout the country. Please see how such facilities exist in our neighboring countries.

  • This is beyond stupidity. There are a lot of illegal registrations of cars across Punjab by people who are not residents of Islamabad but have got the license plates from Islamabad just because the cars from Islamabad get resold in Punjab at higher prices. These cars are always staying in Punjab registered to people who have no living address in Islamabad which actually is illegal. Unfortunately, our intellectual people are lacking common sense and understanding of the long term consequences.

  • The number of my car belongs to Punjab and I have paid fee for issuing computerised number plate some years ago but still not issued

  • Such a good facilitating step by the Government. If implemented in it’s letter and spirit the fruits would be obvious.

  • Car inspection and physical verification is the Job of Anti car lifting cell because they have equipment and labs, There is nothing to do for excise and taxation department, there job is tax collection only but they are running behind cars and trucks. Infact in banana republic everyone is collecting money. Pay amount and get clearance.

  • This should not be termed as a relief as buying used cars is not a frequent activity. Relief should be given by reducing token tax.

  • It’s good news but also order about for Punjab bayomatric has bn only sellar side

  • Punjab and Islamabad regester cars are present in huge number in kp also.
