Fill a Form, Put it in the Box & Get Your Number Plate
To end the vehicle number plate deadlock, Punjab government is taking a rather interesting approach. As per Punjab Excise, Taxation & Narcotics Control Department, it will put boxes across the city of Lahore for it. There will be forms alongside these boxes, people just have to fill those forms, put in boxes and Excise department will deliver their number plates at their homes.
Boxes to be Put Across Lahore
As per the authority, initially the boxes are placed at Karim Block, Link Road Model Town and Emporium. In next phase, the authority will place them at Liberty Market, Shahdara, Mall Road, Baghbanpura, Hyper Star Fortress, DHA and Packages Mall.
The people, who haven’t received their plates, will fill the form, put in the box and that is it. As mentioned earlier, they will get the plates at their home address.
For further information or complaint, the consumers can call on 042-99211421.
