PESHAWAR: Chief Minister’s Special Assistant on Excise, Taxation and Narcotics Control Ghazan Jamal on Monday paid a surprise visit to the Excise Directorate to learn about the problems of the general public.

An official handout said that Ghazan Jamal was briefed by Director General Syed Fayyaz Ali Shah on the occasion. Ghazan Jamal learned about the public complaints and directed the quarters concerned to redress their issues.

The special assistant said that e-payments and smart cards for motor vehicle registration would soon be introduced to facilitate the people.

“The GIS based survey is in progress in the capital city which will not only redress public complaints about immovable property taxes but will also minimise human interaction in tax collection and calculation,” Ghazan Jamal maintained.
