ISLAMABAD – The Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has directed the authorities to take notice of complaints regarding additional fees being charged for registered number plates in Islamabad.
According to PakistanTribe’s correspondent, Chaudhry Nisar also took notice of the complaints concerning the misappropriation in giving a contract for vehicle registration plates in the Excise and Taxation (E&TD) of the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) and asked for a report from the Chief and Deputy Commissioner concerning this.
Earlier, Interior Ministry has issued a statement ordering the excise department to collect Rs. 800 when new number plates are issued instead of Rs. 1,300 until the investigation regarding any embezzlement is completed.
The interior ministry has taken this step after it received multiple complaints from people that the E&T department had been overcharging them for new number plates.
Old and custom registration plates were causing issues with the Safe City project as they lacked proper security features needed for proper identification and verification.
