The Imo State Internal Revenue Service (IIRS) has developed and launched its own vehicle registration platform known as IMOVREG.
It was gathered that an outstanding feat is aimed at boosting the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
The development and deployment of the platform was announced in a statement signed by the Interim Executive Chairman of the Service, Lady June Chiaka-Levi Oguike.
The statement reads; “The Imo State Government through the New IIRS has recorded an outstanding feat in its resolve towards boosting the State’s Internally Generated Revenue by developing and deploying its own vehicle registration platform known as IMOVREG.
“This masterstroke stems from the enormous challenges faced by the Service ranging from the loss of key government data to loss of funds amongst others and is undeniably, a welcome development for Imo State residents.
“The commencement of IMOVREG is in line with His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma’s goal of harmonizing key payment processes using automated solutions across Imo State.
“The advantage of IMOVREG includes the reasonable reduction of process flow time in Vehicle particulars payment and confirmation, reduction in the issuance of fake vehicle particulars and an advanced verification process, which involves the issuance of a dynamic barcode with which citizens can confirm the authenticity of their vehicle particulars.
“This unique barcode displays the name of the citizen, transaction number, reference number and date of expiration of vehicle documents.
“IMOVREG with the approval of His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, supersedes all legacy systems including the General Motor Receipts (GMR) previously used in the IIRS’s Motor Licensing Authority (MLA) unit.
“The general public is hereby advised to visit the MLA Unit at IIRS Headquarters at No 76 Okigwe Road Opposite Civil Defence Corps for all matters relating to vehicle particulars”.
