KARACHI: The Sindh government has introduced the online motor vehicle tax payment facility for registered owners of private and commercial vehicles, said the Excise, Taxation and Narcotics Control (ETNC) Department on Thursday.
“Not only will this enable owners of private and commercial vehicles to pay tax any time during 24 hours a day, it will also bring in additional 20pc revenue for the department,” said DG Excise Sindh Shoaib Siddiqui.
He said that the tax can be paid through ATM kiosk, internet banking (web portal) and Easypaisa mobile application, adding that in the next few days, motor vehicle tax could also be paid through the JazzCash payment system.
Speaking about the convenience of the facility, Siddiqui said that vehicle owners do not have to show up at the excise office anymore to pay the tax.
“The government has taken the step to reduce the public visits to offices of ETNC Department to eliminate long queues,” read a notification by the department.
