Gujranwala Excise collects Rs1b in 7 years

SIALKOT: The Excise & Taxation department has collected Rs1 billion in categories of registration and lifetime token tax fee on motorcycles as 1.45 million motorcycles worth of Rs20.5 billion were sold during last seven years in Gujranwala region.

According to the excise officials, the major reason behind the growing number of purchase of motorcycles was unaffordable fares of public transport and rickshaws, which forced the commuters to buy their own conveyance instead of travelling in public transport.

The Punjab government had computerized all the official record of motorcycles’ registration and token tax to make sure the surveillance over motorcycles sale and to end illegal trading.
