government of Punjab accepts plan for new drug prevention department

Maryam Nawaz, the chief minister of Punjab, has given her approval for the building of three police stations in order to combat drugs.

The chief minister presided over a meeting of the Department of Excise, Taxation, and Narcotics Control. It was agreed to create a new department devoted to drug prevention, and in order to combat drug smuggling, 13 excise checkpoints would be constructed.

The meeting was informed that while tax collection had grown by 12.5%, work had begun on the e-registration of automobiles.

In addition, an evaluation of the opium factory’s restoration revealed that medicines will benefit to the tune of Rs 900 million. The excise department would collaborate with the Safe City Authority to reclaim tickets and offer its services through the Dastak programme.

In addition to directing the removal of the backlog of car registration plates, the chief minister requested a report on the tax differential based on rental value and DC rate.

Maryam Nawaz announced during the meeting that those who do not pay taxes should be included in the tax system and that a tax consulting unit will be established.
