Sindh govt introduces smart card for vehicle registration

KARACHI: The Sindh government has introduced a new system for the registration of vehicles, replacing the conventional registration book with a security-featured MVR smart card.

Speaking to media on Monday, Sindh Minister for Excise and Taxation Mukesh Kumar Chawla said the government has started issuing “security-featured smart cards”, which are equipped with the most modern security features. Vehicle owners will now be able to obtain this card instead of the registration book as proof of registration, he added.

He said the security-featured smart cards will not only eliminate the menace of fake registration of vehicles but will also help law enforcement agencies to determine their ownership without any hassle.

The minister said the excise and taxation department had already introduced an online tax payment facility for motorists. He reiterated that provision of facilities to people is the foremost priority of the provincial government.

Earlier this year, the Sindh Assembly had passed the Provincial Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill 2020 to replace old registration book with security-featured smart card.

Chawla, who is also Sindh Parliamentary Affairs Minister, had tabled the bill that brought amendments to the Motor Vehicle Ordinance 1965 to create the provision in the existing motor vehicles registration law for security-featured card.

  1. My name is Maria Danish . My car registration number is BSH-811 , I haven’t receive the car book yet and was going to have it on 3rd November 2020 , as I didn’t receive the book I want to get smart card , its a request to accept my smart card application and do further process …..
    I will be highly grateful
    May you be happy forever !

    • This is not an appropriate forum to lodge your application.
      I personally don’t think it may be possible to get the smart card in your case. Cases dealt with before a certain date got the old style books. I got a vehicle transferred under my name on 6th November and got the old book.
      Hope this helps.
