The computerization of public transport and bus stops’ records in Rawalpindi was ordered on Friday following the Punjab government’s decision.
The directives were issued in a meeting presided over by Additional District Collector Revenue (ADCR) Chaudhary Muhammad Ali Randhawa.
The purpose is to ease the checking of vehicles.
According to revenue department officials, many transporters lack route permits, thus avoiding paying the tax. The computerization would help keep track of them, thus increasing the provincial government’s revenue.
