Tracking number plates for vehicles contract awarded to NRTC
KARACHI – June 30, 2021- The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday rejected a petition filed by a private contractor against granting exemption in a tender filed against modern tracking number plates. A two-member bench headed by Justice Mrs. Rashida Asad delivered the reserved judgment regarding installation of modern tracking number plates in vehicles in Sindh.
The court rejected the application of a private contractor against granting exemption in the tender. The court ruled that all law enforcement agencies should be consulted on modern tracking number plates. The vehicles should be fitted with world class modern tracking number plates.
The Sindh government had stated that making FRID number plates was a sensitive task. Due to sensitivity, the tender was awarded to NRTC. RFID (radio frequency identification) number plates can only be made by the National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation.
The public prosecutor had argued that the Sindh government had the power to grant immunity under the sensitivity of the matter.
The objection from the private contractor should be rejected. The court rejected the request of the private contractor.
The decision was reserved by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Arshad Hussain Khan.
