Steps have been taken for extending eRevenue licence, the automated service of issuing the vehicle revenue licence , to the Southern Province as well.
While this service was introduced first in the Western Province, based on its success in the Western Province, action has been taken to extend it to the Southern Province as well, the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) says.
As a result of this vehicle owners are enabled to obtain their vehicle revenue licence from the Divisional Secretariat nearest to them.
ICTA says that by now the initial activities for introducing this facility in the Southern Province have been carried out.
ICTA also said that about 500,000 revenue licences were issued in the Western Province in 2012 under this eRevenue licence project.
ICTA says that while this automated service could be obtained in the Western Province Online as well, it is hoped to introduce this facility in the Southern Province.
