JPJ transformation programme nationwide in April


ALOR SETAR: The Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) Transformation Programme or JTP which was started in mid-2010 is expected to be implemented nationwide this April.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the upgrade of the department’s computer system was 49 per cent completed.

He said the system was being tested and the upgrade involved vehicle registration, automotive engineering, and management of drivers licence, enforcement and revenue collection.

“The department will introduce new initiatives which would positively impact service delivery and simplify client dealings with JPJ,” he said after the
official opening of the new Suka Menanti JPJ office here yesterday.

Kong said the JTP was also a part of the government’s aspiration to achieve 85 per cent online service by 2015.

Commenting on the MCA-DAP debate at Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur last Saturday, Kong who is also MCA secretary-general, described the event as not having achieved its objective, as he felt DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had not answered the questions directed at him. — Bernama
