Punjab Government introduces 'paperless' driving license for citizens' ease
Government of Pakistan has collaborated with the Pakistan Information Technology Board (PITB) and the Central Police Office Rawalpindi.
A paperless driving license system has been introduced in Pakistan, that envisions to enhance citizens\\’ ease. According to sources, the Government of Pakistan has collaborated with the Pakistan Information Technology Board (PITB) and the Central Police Office Rawalpindi to bring the initiative to life.
Preparations to launch the facility are still underway, though the plan includes the following specifications:
- The facility will have one window that issues the learning driving license to people without asking for documents (as was the case previously).
- This one window will also facilitate license holders by renewing the validity of their license. For this purpose, people do not have to carry photos, passports, fill, or submit any forms. They only need to bring along their National Identity Card issued by NADRA for registration.
Though the paperless license system will be operational soon, it is still subject to a few tweaks to ensure effective implementation.
These include issues like:
- People still have to make a file containing two passport-sized photos and a stamp that equals the amount of the license fee. This stamp must be attached to the form to indicate that the designated government fee has been paid.
- People are still subject to fines for crossing the deadlines, even though their license expired during the lockdown and that the government offices were not operational during the lockdown.
Once the authorities have dealt with these issues, the new license system will make the citizens\\’ life much more comfortable.
