E&T to launch general hold up against token tax defaulters on Nov 7

Excise and Taxation Rawalpindi has finalized arrangements to launch general hold up on November 7 (Wednesday) against token tax defaulters, improper number plates and unregistered vehicles.
Motor-vehicle Registration Authority (MRA) Officer Rawalpindi Sohail Sabir talking to APP informed that nine special teams had been formed for the general hold up which would be conducted simultaneously in different areas of the district.
The vehicles of token tax defaulters and unregistered vehicles would be impounded during the operation.
The team would conduct special checking of vehicles under the supervision of Assistant Excise and Taxation Officer Sohail Shahzad while Excise Inspectors, Gul Sher Khan, Malik Javed, Raza Shah, Zulfiqar Abbas, Ehtisham ul Haq, Jahangir Khan, Ajmal Bhatti and Fayyaz Babar would lead their respective teams to be deployed in different areas.
He said that the authorities concerned had strictly ordered to tighten noose around the vehicle of token and other tax defaulters.
The department would not release any impounded vehicle until the defaulters pay the tax, he added.
He said, the citizens should help the department to indicate the vehicles which were plying on roads without payment of token tax fee and custom duty so that the department could take legal action against these defaulters as per law.
He informed that Director E&T Rawalpindi Division Chaudhry Muhammad Sohail Arshad had directed the officers to take strict action in accordance with the law against token tax defaulters.—APP
