The Punjab Excise and Taxation Department has started the delivery of registration plates of all vehicles across the province, including in Rawalpindi, through Pakistan Post.
As per the agreement reached between the two entities two months ago, the registration plates of new vehicles registered in Punjab, are dispatched by the excise department in Lahore. This is made possible via the Urgent Mail Service, which sends it to all related post offices across the province.
The postal department has also appointed focal persons for all districts. Chief Postmaster Abdul Ghaffar Brohi has issued instructions to the staff to ensure prompt distribution of all registration plates.
Meanwhile, Rawalpindi Express Post Manager Khattab Khan has been given responsibility for the Rawalpindi district. The officials said steps were being taken to provide the service to people in other provinces, including those in the federal capital.
It has been revealed that the job was earlier in the hands of a few private courier companies. The companies were not delivering registration plates to the addresses provided. Instead, they would call owners at their offices to deliver them there.
Considering all the complaints received, the excise department has assigned the task to the Pakistan Post.
