Chandigarh: Punjab government has launched a web-portal of state Transport Department, enabling the vehicle owners to pay taxes online and get registration certificates of new vehicles immediately.
“This initiative of Transport Department will help citizens from the harassment of repeated visits to Transport Department, Treasury and banks for simply getting registration certificate and driving license. Now onwards they can just log on the web portal and easily avail these services,” Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said.
“This initiative took three years as total old record of Transport Department had to be computerised besides amending rules and legislation to enable these citizen-friendly reforms,” he stated.
Badal said that the conventional system for registration of vehicles was an ordeal for a common man who had to go to bank or treasury branch for payment of taxes, then to District Transport Officer, multiple times, for inspection of vehicles, allotment of permanent number and finally to collect registration certificate.
“Now citizens, while purchasing new vehicle, will pay motor vehicle tax online at the dealer vehicle point. Thereafter he will get permanent number wherein he can make choice out of 50 numbers displayed on real time basis,” Badal pointed out.
After filling the form online, the vehicle owner can go home and he would get smart card registration certificate at his residential address though courier within three to four days.
