LAST CHANCE – Get Your Car Transferred in Your Name
In a public service message, we want to ask the car owners in Punjab to complete the car transfer process and get the vehicles in their names. Because it may be the last chance for them. According to our sources, Punjab Excise Department is all set to launch Biometric system very soon.
The sources told us that biometric will be essential for car transfer, new car registration, and new registration and transfer. It means, in case of transfer both buyer and seller have to give their thumb impressions, else car will not be transferred.
So, if your car is on Open Letter or you have bought it from a relative or its previous owner is out of the country, it is your last chance to get the vehicle in your name. Once the initiative is launched such cases will be in limbo. Hence, once again, Hurry Up and do what you have to do to become proper owner of your car.
The Biometric System has been implemented in Islamabad and Punjab is following the suit.
Why is Biometric Verification Must for Car Transfer?
The process of biometric verification is essential to eliminate the malpractices used in the market. It also makes the whole process more transparent to both the old and the new owner of the vehicle. The government has been working on it for quite some time now.
The government aims to eliminate any fraudulent activity from the market related to the transfer of vehicles. A lot of people have also been driving their vehicles on Open Transfer Letter, which means that they didn’t transfer the vehicle to their own name. In this case, the previous owner could get in trouble if the car gets caught involved in any criminal activity. Therefore, it’s also important to ensure the vehicle is properly transferred to the new owner’s name.
Driving a vehicle on an open transfer letter is illegal. Also, the new biometric vehicle verification system would enable a transparent transfer of a vehicle in the presence of both the buyer and the seller. There have been several cases reported in recent years where the vehicles were sold without any prior consent of the owner of the vehicle; due to the absence of any foolproof system.
