Renew road tax via the Net

Postby admin » Thu Apr 24, 2008 4:27 am

KUALA LUMPUR: For RM2.75, you can now renew your road tax online and, for an additional RM6, have the road tax delivered to you the next day in the Klang Valley.

The delivery fee for those living outside the Klang Valley is RM8, and RM10 for those in Sabah and Sarawak.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak launched the online renewal service, provided by MY E.G. Services Bhd, here yesterday.

Also present at the launch were Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat, Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Ahmad Mustapha Abdul Rashid and MY E.G. Services Bhd executive chairman Datuk Dr Norraesah Mohamad and managing director T.S. Wong.

“I am optimistic this new service will set the benchmarks for the implementation of other e-Government applications,” Najib said in his speech.

Dr Norraesah said the online service enabled the public to renew their road tax from anyplace with Internet access and at anytime, via www.myeg.com.my and www.jpj.gov.my.

Members can also renew their road tax at E-service kiosks placed at selected locations, including bank branches, nationwide.

Online road tax renewal criticised

Postby admin » Thu Apr 24, 2008 4:29 am

KUALA LUMPUR: Car dealers have criticised the Government’s move to allow vehicle road tax to be renewed online, saying the fee was expensive and that it did not benefit the public at large.

Questioning the Road Transport Department's (JPJ) move to outsource the online service to a third party, the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Car Dealers and Credit Companies Association said it also reduced the bank’s interest over car matters.

Association president Khoo Kah Jin said that he was made to understand that if the road tax was renewed online, registration card was not needed.

“Doesn’t this mean that the interests of finance companies are not taken care of especially when it comes to renewing the vehicle insurance?”

Khoo said the online road tax renewal would also do away with one of the income streams of association members.

“People might say it is convenient but I think it is expensive.

“What I really don’t understand is why JPJ had to outsource it to another company.

“If JPJ had spent so much money upgrading their computer system, they should be able to do it themselves.”

On Thursday, MY E.G. Services Bhd launched its online road tax renewal portal where customers could renew their road tax for a fee of RM2.75.

For an additional RM6, the road tax disc could also be delivered to the customer’s doorstep. The company also offers road tax renewal kiosks that would be set up at banks.

Khoo said it was not that difficult to set up the online renewal system and kiosks and added that it was already being performed by post offices.

“They should have got the bank’s involved, especially with their large networks of ATMs already present, instead of spending money to put up new kiosks,” he said, when met before the association’s annual general meeting.

Khoo said the Government should have met with the association for feedback before implementing the move.

Earlier, Khoo handed out RM20,000 worth of donations to 10 welfare homes in Klang Valley.
