NADRA To Conduct Bio Metric Verification Of Vehicle Owners
The process of biometric vehicle owners verification would begin through the NADRA Sahulat Program and would initially last for more than three years in the first phase.
Through its “Sahulat Program,” NADRA will conduct bio metric verification of vehicle owners across Sindh to deter vehicles from operating on open letters, forged documents, or without transfer.
At a signing ceremony held here on Friday, a contract was signed between the Sindh Department of Excise and Taxation and the National Database and Registration Authority and Anti-Narcotics.
In the presence of Secretary Excise and Taxation and Anti-Narcotics Sindh Atif Rehman, Director General Excise and Taxation Aurangzeb Panhwer, and other officers, the agreement was signed by Director Excise Admin Waheed Sheikh on behalf of the Sindh Excise Department and Head of e-Government Salman Malik on behalf of NADRA.
According to the agreement, the process of bio metric vehicle owners verification would begin through the NADRA Sahulat Program and would initially last for more than three years in the first phase.
Under the terms of this agreement, it will be discouraged for vehicles to operate on forged documents, operate without a transfer, or operate on open letters.
In a statement, the Sindh Minister for Excise and Taxation and Anti-Narcotics, described the agreement as another step toward bringing convenience to the people of Sindh.
He claimed that biometric authentication has helped solve many issues in the current technological era and maintained that the agreement would be useful in modernising the Sindh Excise Department as well.
It is important for governments to take measures to ensure that vehicles operating on the road are properly registered and have all necessary documentation. Conducting biometric verification of vehicle owners through the “Sahulat Program” can help to deter the use of forged documents or vehicles operating without transfer, which can help to improve road safety and reduce the risk of accidents.
Additionally, such measures can help reduce the potential for fraudulent activity and ensure that vehicle owners are held accountable for their actions. By taking steps to improve the regulatory environment for vehicles, governments can help create a safer and more efficient transportation system.
