The process of registering vehicles without customs-traffic documents has begun.
Acting Minister of Finance Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal said that the aim of the process is to increase national revenues, ensure security, and prevent traffic disruptions.
“Starting the process of registering undocumented vehicles is a step towards better security because in the past, most of the illegal work was done by these vehicles,” Arghandiwal said.
The process of registering undocumented vehicles starts on Oct 31 and will continue until the next month. Any vehicle that enters Afghanistan without customs documents will be confiscated.
Earlier, Amrullah Saleh, the first vice president said that there had been complaints of undocumented vehicles for years and it is one of the serious challenges in tracking down criminals.
He called on people to legalize their vehicles as soon as possible by paying taxes or their cars will be handed over to the police or they will be distributed to the martyrs’ heirs.
