KARACHI: To nab the tax defaulting vehicles across the province, a road checking campaign was launched on Monday that will continue till March 31.

Eleven teams consisting of officers and officials have been constituted in Karachi only to recover motor vehicles tax, said a statement.

The campaign is launched on the directives of Sindh Minister for Excise and Taxation Mukesh Kumar Chawla.

The E&T Department has selected 38 places in Karachi where the assigned teams will check the vehicles plying on the roads.

The Minister has directed the concerned staff to wear proper uniforms during the road checking campaign and no negligence will be tolerated in this regard.

He advised the owners of the vehicles in their own interest to deposit the due tax before bringing their vehicles on the roads to avoid any unpleasant situation because tax defaulting vehicles would be impounded and would release only after payment of due tax and penalty too.

He has directed the checking staff to behave politely during the campaign and the road should not be blocked and flow of the traffic must not be distributed.

He directed to take action against Qingqi/auto Rikshaws, and vehicles plying without, expired or suspicious number plates.

He has further directed to take action against the Qingqi and auto rickshaw plying with temporary registration or old registration number, fancy number plates or vehicles plying with “Personalized Numbers plate ” which have already been canceled, should be checked as per law.—APP
