Punjab’s Excise Launches Virtual Vehicle Registration Card
The Excise, Taxation, and Narcotics Control Department in Punjab have introduced a groundbreaking initiative – the virtual registration card for vehicles. This innovative step is designed to spare citizens from the inconvenience of traffic fines and related issues that arise when they fail to carry the physical registration document while driving.
The inauguration of the ‘E-Registration Card’ service took place at a ceremony held at the DG Excise Office on a Friday, attended by key figures including Chief Secretary Punjab Zahid Akhtar Zaman and DG Excise Muhammad Ali. During the event, the DG excise highlighted that the e-registration card marks the first instance of an electronic title document in Pakistan.
Expressing gratitude, he acknowledged the efforts of caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi and the chief secretary for effectively addressing the longstanding issues within the department. This shift represents a significant transformation in the 18-year-old motor vehicle registration system, aimed at providing citizens with hassle-free services.
Obtaining the virtual registration card is a straightforward process for vehicle owners. The official website of the Punjab excise department offers a user-friendly interface for this purpose. Users can locate the “E-Registration Card” option on the top right side of the website’s menu bar. By clicking on the tab, owners are prompted to enter essential information such as the vehicle registration number and chassis number.
Upon entering the required details, users receive their virtual registration card, which can be conveniently saved on their mobile phones. This electronic version serves as a valid document that can be presented to law enforcement, including police and other security officials, for verification whenever demanded. The introduction of this virtual registration card not only streamlines the process for citizens but also reflects the department’s commitment to embracing modern technology for enhanced service delivery.
