Under the heading ‘Paperless Method of Issuance of License,’ the PITB or Punjab Information and Technology Board has launched a new program. The new project applies to Rawalpindi residents, but if everything goes well, the technology is expected to be practiced at national level shortly.
The licensing process is nothing more than a lengthy procedure in Pakistan. The Pakistani government has advised people, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, to maintain social distance and impose the partial locks state in order to avoid the spread of the disease. Innovative and yet digital approaches are being developed by the Government to reduce the spread of new coronaviruses.
key features of this system:
- No need of any type of documents copy
- No long queues for Ticket anymore
- No need of Passport size photograph
- No need of sign test from one Room to another
With the initiation of the project, citizens will be saved from submitting the additional documents that are only submitted after attestation. Hence no need to worry about the submission of sign test and passport-sized images to obtain the license. Citizens will only require to come up with the original identity card and the processing fees.
Apart from that PITB has also initiated many other projects for digitizing the important sectors of Pakistan such as developing an e-Building Portal where people can approve the building plans and development of management system for Punjab Excise and Taxation which would help the users in booking an appointment with the Taxation department virtually. By far, PITB has completed over 200 projects in the province and is also working on multiple other projects which will be launched soon.
