PTI-led government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has decided to launch the smart cards for the registration purpose of the vehicles across the province.
The government of KP took this step as the smart card will help to discourage fabrication of vehicle’s documents and will make the whole process of registration more efficient.
The new system would help eliminate corruption and use of vehicles with fake number plates in different types of crime. It will also help to eliminate the tendency of late registration of vehicles and evasion of motor vehicle tax.
The car registration card would carry features like vehicle owners’ name, CNIC details, chassis number, registration number, date of registration, engine number, previous registration, token tax expiry date, number of cylinders, type of body, color of vehicle, maker’s name, class of vehicle, unladen weight, reg laden weight, tyre size, front axle, rear axle, other axle, year of manufacturing, seating capacity, horse power/CC and Assessed Annual Tax.
The new automated card features a Near Field Communication (NFC) chip which helps verify the card details and displays expiry date of the token tax.
