Crackdown on Unregistered Vehicles in Sindh

The Sindh government is proposing a significant update to car registration laws to enhance traffic safety and compliance. According to Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon, the new legislation will eliminate the current 60-day grace period for vehicle registration after purchase. Under this new rule, cars must be registered before leaving the dealership or entering the country.

This amendment aims to prevent the misuse of 'Applied For' number plates, a practice that has allowed unregistered vehicles to be driven legally during the registration period. Minister Memon stated that this change is crucial to curb this loophole and ensure that all vehicles on the road are properly registered from the start.

For imported cars arriving at Karachi’s seaport, immediate registration will be mandatory if they are to remain in Sindh. Vehicles destined for other provinces will not be permitted on Sindh roads without registration and will need to be transported by carriers. This ensures that only fully compliant vehicles are driven within the province.

The proposed legislation includes stringent penalties for non-compliance, with fines up to Rs. 1 million for violators. This measure is part of a broader strategy to enhance vehicle tracking and ensure that every car on Sindh's roads adheres to regulatory standards, promoting overall traffic safety and order.

The revision to the Motor Vehicles Ordinance 1965 is expected to be presented at the next cabinet meeting, where it is likely to receive widespread support. This move underscores the Sindh government's commitment to creating safer and more regulated traffic conditions across the province.
