The Punjab Excise, Taxation, and Narcotics Department have taken a significant leap into the digital era by launching virtual registration cards for vehicles, providing a solution to a longstanding issue faced by new vehicle owners in the province.
In the past, vehicle owners in Punjab often found themselves in a predicament when traffic police imposed fines for not carrying physical registration cards. However, this problem is now a thing of the past, thanks to the department’s recent initiative.
The department announced through its social media channels that individuals who have successfully registered their vehicles but have not yet received their physical cards can now obtain a digital copy by visiting the department’s official website.
To access the virtual registration card, users need to follow the instructions provided on the website and provide their chassis and registration numbers. Once obtained, vehicle owners can easily download and store the digital card on their mobile devices, ensuring a practical and accessible solution.
The department celebrated the launch of Punjab’s inaugural electronic title document, the E-Registration Card, on its social media platforms.
This move by the Excise department is commendable as it not only saves vehicle owners from fines and legal troubles but also aligns with the government’s broader objective of digitizing public services for the convenience of citizens.
It’s worth noting that the government and traffic police had previously allowed digital renewal of driver’s licenses and online issuance of learner permits. The introduction of e-driving licenses improved communication with traffic officials, as individuals could conveniently display their licenses online to avoid penalties.
These digital initiatives significantly enhance residents’ convenience by enabling them to obtain essential documents from the comfort of their homes. Supporters of such progressive laws are urging the government to continue implementing measures that benefit the public.
