KARACHI: Sindh Senior Minister for Information, Excise, Taxation, Narcotics Control, Transport, and Mass Transit Sharjeel Inam Memon presided over a meeting on the 2nd auction of premium number plates at the Excise and Taxation Department at the Directorate of Excise and Taxation in Karachi on Wednesday.

Officials said that during the meeting, discussions were held on initiating the second auction of premium number plates and establishing a separate office for the issuance of these numbers.
