The Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) Cracks Down on Tout Mafia

July 11, 2024Zayn0

The Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) has made it illegal for the tout mafia to enter the area where its driving license office is located. The purpose of this action is to improve the merit and openness of the licensing procedure.

Tackling the Tout Mafia

The traffic chief has firmly forbidden any suspicious person from visiting the office because of their involvement in unlawful actions linked to the driving license procedure, according to a statement released by the ITP. Known to operate out of major public service offices, the tout mafia charges exorbitant fees to citizens for various duties like as creating files, scheduling appointments, filling out paperwork, and providing special services.

One of the actions taken by the current ITP chief, Muhammad Sarfraz Virk, who has brought about multiple reforms in the last six months, is the banning of the tout mafia.

New Corporate Office and Wheels Service

  • ITP has effectively moved its offices to a location on Murree Road, Shakarparian, that is authorized by law, from a non-conforming region of the city. The Islamabad Expressway makes it easy for people living in urban and rural areas, as well as private housing societies, to get to this new location, which has the support of all pertinent municipal bodies.
  • In addition to the offices and public facilitation centers, the new headquarters has a big parking area, air-conditioned waiting areas, a restaurant, a mosque, and grass.
  • In addition, the chief traffic officer has started offering residents doorstep assistance through an on-wheels service. Universities, colleges, government and semi-government agencies, media outlets, and other organizations are covered by this service.

Education On Wheels Service

Additionally, a service called “education on wheels” has been introduced, providing traffic law awareness seminars at several metropolitan locations. Furthermore, a special assistance program known as “ITP Mechanic on Wheels” has been established. This program enables those in need to contact the hotline number 1915 to locate a mechanic in any part of the federal capital.

Ongoing Legal Review

It is important to note that the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb is presently deliberating over a petition concerning the ITP’s ability to handle infractions and other difficulties. In 2020, the petitioner notified the IHC that the ITP had previously been using the 9th Avenue greenbelt as its headquarters.
