As part of the Public Sector Development Projects (PSDP) in fiscal budget 2022-23, the federal government has committed Rs. 241.93 million to strengthen the road security capacities of the Capital Territory Police (CTP). These projects were initially approved by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) administration with a proposed budget of Rs. 165.93 million and no foreign support.
The government has set aside Rs. 182.64 million for smart car surveillance and Rs. 59.29 million for upgrading vehicle document scanning and tax collection mechanisms from the allocated funds.
By June 30, 2022, CTP expects to invest Rs. 56 million on smart car monitoring and Rs. 18 million on scanning and tax collecting equipment. The remaining funds would be spent in FY2022-23, with Rs. 126.64 million for smart car monitoring and Rs. 39.29 million for scanning equipment and tax collection mechanisms.
CTP will still have Rs. 2 million in its budget for the latter after that. The agency is working to improve the efficiency of its daily operations, which include surveillance and record-keeping for all registered cars in the region.
