Pakistan Post, the national postal service of Pakistan, has recently started a new initiative to deliver computerized smart vehicle registration cards and number plates to the citizens of Rawalpindi. This initiative, which began on Tuesday, January 17, 2024, aims to provide convenience and efficiency to vehicle owners and reduce their hassle of visiting the excise and taxation office.
According to a news report, the Pakistan Post has signed an agreement with the Punjab Excise Taxation and Narcotics Control Department (ETNCD) to carry out this service. The ETNCD is responsible for issuing intelligent cards and number plates, which are meant to create a centralized database of vehicle data and facilitate the authorities and the owners. The Pakistan Post will receive the cards and plates from the ETNCD and deliver them to the owners’ registered addresses within a few days.
The news report also stated that the ETNCD has resumed the production of intelligent cards after a pause of about seven months and plans to complete the pending batch and dispatch them to the owners by March. The current backlog includes 30,000 smart cards and 45,000 computerized number plates registered in the Rawalpindi district. The production of computerized number plates is expected to start within the next two weeks.
The Pakistan Post has expressed its commitment to providing a seamless and secure service to vehicle owners and has assured that the delivery process will be transparent and traceable. The vehicle owners can track the status of their cards and plates online through the Pakistan Post website or mobile app. They can also contact the Pakistan Post customer service team by phone or email for any queries or complaints.
This initiative by Pakistan Post is a significant step towards improving public service delivery and enhancing customer satisfaction. It is also a reflection of the collaboration and innovation between the government departments and the postal service. The vehicle owners of Rawalpindi can now enjoy the benefits of receiving their intelligent cards and number plates at their doorsteps without any extra cost or hassle.
