|Sector||Transport and Mass Transit|
|BeneficiariesAutomotive Owners||All Transport Businesses|
|Department||Sindh Mass Transit Authority|
|Date of Implementation||8-4-2022|
|Details||Difficulty||The license granted to auto workshop had a validity period of only one year and the auto workshop businesses have to get it renewed every year. This short validity period and yearly renewals place extra cost and compliance burden on the SMEs involved in the auto workshop business.|
|Analysis||It was found that Motor Vehicle Rules, 1969 state that the auto workshop license cannot be valid more than one year. To revise this the amendment in the Motor Vehicle Rules was required.|
|Solution||In line with the reform proposal, Transport and Mass Transit Department has extended the validity period of auto workshop license from 1 to 3 by means of amendment in Motor Vehicle Rules, 1969.|
