Islamabad Deputy Commissioner Office said that the government has launched a vehicle registration service at consumers’ doorstep. National Database and Registration Authority NADRA and Federal Excise & Taxation Department (ET&D) have collaborated for this service.
The customers will not have to wait or stand in any queue through this service, the office said. Furthermore, the timing of this service is 9:00 am to 3:00 pm from Monday to Friday.
According to media reports, the officials will also hand over the vehicles’ registration number plates to the consumers at their doorsteps.
