While briefing the meeting, Director General Excise and Taxation Narcotics Control Shabbir Ahmed Sheikh told that for Road Checking Campaign a foolproof program was being chalked out and most probably these campaigns would be held in August to September, December to February and March to April. 

He added that during these Road Checking Campaigns it will be ensured to collect maximum tax from tax defaulting vehicles.  On this occasion, the caretaker minister Mushtaq Ahmed Shah asked the Secretary ET&NC to launch a mass awareness campaign through print and electronic media so that the tax defaulting vehicles’ owners might deposit their taxes to avoid any untoward situation.
